Representative Lee Zeldin of New York's First Congressional District will host mobile office hours Thursday night from 6 to 9 at Stony Brook Southampton's Chancellors Hall at 39 Tuckahoe Road. All members of the public and press have been invited to attend.

According to an email from a member of Mr. Zeldin's staff, constituents will be afforded one-on-one meetings with the congressman or a staff member to discuss issues important to them. An appointment is not necessary.

No videotaping or recording will be allowed; the email states that that prohibition is to protect constituents' privacy.

Some members of Congress have reduced or eliminated town-hall style meetings as many have faced angry protests from constituents, particularly over Republicans' attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Zeldin, a Republican and supporter of President Trump, has been highly critical of the Affordable Care Act and in January voted in favor of a budget resolution that would begin the process of its repeal.

In addition to Thursday's mobile office hours, Mr. Zeldin marched in Southold's Fourth of July parade this week.
