Congressman Antonio Delgado, R-19, pauses for a photo op this afternoon at Oneonta Job Corps’ Robert B. Sweeney Smart Grid Advanced Training Yard. He observed the new class of Overhead Line students climbing – see them on the poles? – and talked to a graduate who is leaving with five others to start his new job as a lineman at Rocky Mountain Fiber Plus in Connecticut. Delgado then visited the Drone Pilot Class at Oneonta Airport, even trying his hand flying a drone. With Delgado in this photo are, from left, Bill Renwick, Kimberley McIntyre, Israel Delgado, Barbara Torrey, John Patrick Baptista, Dave Simmons, Steve Brown, Amy Fleury, Jacob Martetin and Tracie Hunt. Crouching in front is Andy Guerrero Reynoso.
