Owens talks jobs in St. Lawrence County

Listen to this story
Congress is out of session. That means representatives are criss-crossing their districts to talk with constituents. Coming off a town hall meeting Wednesday night in Plattsburgh, Democrat Bill Owens made several stops yesterday in St. Lawrence County.
He visited the chamber of commerce in Canton, spoke to a rotary club in Ogdensburg, and met with seniors at a nursing center in Massena. While on the road, Owens spoke with David Sommerstein.
When Owens returns to Washington, he'll face what's expected to be a divisive debate over next year's federal budget and raising the nation's debt ceiling. Owens has said he's likely to vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling.
