HUDSON – With President Donald Trump presenting a $4.75 trillion 2020 fiscal budget, Congressman Antonio Delgado is looking to hear from his constituents on what they want to see in that budget.

On Tuesday night Delgado hosted an interactive budget workshop at Columbia-Greene Community College in Hudson. . . . 

The workshop was prompted by the Concord Coalition, a non-partisan organization that advocates for putting the national debt on a sustainable course. People who attended were split into groups that represented committees in Congress. . . .  

“They get a chance to come in and decide what to cut, what to keep, what to expand but in the end they assemble a 10 year federal budget that hopefully is fiscally responsible,” said Phil Smith, the national field director for the Concord Coalition.
