Assemblymember Kelles: Risk to State Offices Shuts Down District Office

Ithaca, NY — Our office has been notified of risk to all State offices.

The Governor and the New York Assembly and New York State Senate leadership are collectively adding extra law enforcement protections for the State government for the safety of its staff and for the public.

However, given the widespread unrest, we feel it prudent at this time to close our district office to the public to ensure the safety of district staff and all community members. Starting immediately, we will be closing our district office to in-person engagement.

The office will remain closed until Friday, January 21. If the community risk at that time remains elevated, then we will communicate any extension of the office closure. Assemblymember Kelles and her staff can still be reached by phone at (607) 277-8030 and by email at

We wish everyone safety and health during these turbulent times.
