Local advocates asked U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand about how the Bronx will be remembered on the federal level, citing a variety of issues, from education to gun violence and health care at a town hall on Monday at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx.

Bronxites had the opportunity to submit questions — which were chosen at random — to ask the federal lawmaker about issues most important to them. Various elected officials sat in the audience, also listening to locals’ concerns.
