Congressman Richard Hanna now represents New York's newly-configured 22nd district. The district now includes all or parts of several counties, including Broome and Tioga.

Hanna was sworn in today as the 113th Congress convened in Washington.

The Oneida County Republican was first elected to the House of Representatives in the 24th district in 2010.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Hanna said he plans to open an office in downtown Binghamton next week.

The office will be on the second floor of the Metrocenter on Court Street.

Hanna said the office will be fully-staffed every day to assist constituents in the Binghamton area.

The congressman said the Metrocenter location should be accessible and "protester-friendly."

Hanna said he "can't stand the federal buildings that are like mausoleums... they're loud and too much security."

Hanna said the Binghamton office should be "user-friendly." He said people are welcome to stop by the office and ask questions or express concerns to the staff.
