Assemblyman John Ceretto, R-Lewiston, will use social media to hold a virtual town hall meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday.

Ceretto said this will be the third time he has opened his Facebook page for a town hall “meeting,” where he allows people to post questions on his Facebook page that he will then answer as comments. He said the virtual town hall is being offered in conjunction with his door-to-door “Listening Tour” throughout his district.

Ceretto said constituents may post questions on a wide variety of topics, from economic development to education and more.

“With so many issues affecting Western New York families, I hope to use this Facebook Town Hall to answer questions and inform constituents about the issues that affect them most,” said Ceretto.

“The Internet and social media allow the people to have access to their representatives in ways that were not possible in the past.”

People wishing to participate in the town hall should go to Ceretto’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/John-D-Ceretto/182498981761714, “like” the page and then post a question on Ceretto’s wall.
