Star endorses Obama, Gillibrand

(Continued)

Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand has also proven herself worthy of re-election to the U.S. Senate with her efforts for our area.

She has worked hard independently and with fellow New York Sen. Charles Schumer to shine a light on the issues facing us. She’s helped bring federal financial assistance to local farmers and others hurt by last year’s flooding and this year’s drought, worked on dairy reform, shown strong support for small businesses and helped bring an end to the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy concerning gay servicemen and servicewomen.

Gillibrand also has contributed to much-needed transparency to Congress by posting her official daily meeting schedules, personal financial disclosure forms and earmark requests online.

She is an upstate resident who has made strides to improve our lives and our government. We support Gillibrand’s re-election.
