To the editor:
As a member of the United States military, I am writing about the formation of the new 19th Congressional District. There are two individuals running in this race: Julian Schreibman a lawyer from Kingston, and our current congressmen, Chris Gibson.
I asked myself, whom do I consider to cast my vote for? Schreibman, a lawyer with absolutely no leadership qualities and who puts out lies and distortions about Congressman Gibson? Or Chris Gibson, a man with an unblemished 24-year career in the U.S. Army with four tours in Iraq, a BA from Siena College and a Ph.d. in government from Cornell University? In this writer's opinion, there is only one choice; Chris Gibson a natural-born leader who has the experience, honor and integrity to effectively represent our district in Washington.
So when you decide who to vote for in November, think about that.

(Editor's note: While Rep. Gibson's current 20th District extends into the North Country, the new 19th District, which he is running to represent, does not.)
