To the editor:
As a former member of the United States Navy, I am extremely concerned about the newly created 19th Congressional District. I live in the district, the previous representatives we had in our area were a joke, and we all paid for it.
We currently have a representative who loves my area named Chris Gibson, who in my opinion actually cares about the people in his district. I think it is high time we kept an individual in office with the leadership abilities that Gibson has. He is a leader, not a follower. Gibson has voted on many issues that concern us all and crossed party lines for his constituents, not for the sake of the party.
In closing, the last thing we need in Washington is another lawyer.
(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.)
