Washington, DC—Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) with former Congressman and Lieutenant Governor Stan Lundine, attended a Supreme Court event this week honoring Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, a justice from Jamestown, NY.
“I am honored to attend this event honoring a great man from Chautauqua County, and am proud to stand next to another great man from Chautauqua County,” said Congressman Higgins. “Both of these public servants understand the intricacies of Jamestown and its surrounding regions, and brought their Western New York values with them to the national and international stages. As a freshman Member of Congress, I hope to be able to emulate the high level of service and commitment they gave to Chautauqua County and the entire Western New York.
