Gibson doesn't understand constituents

Gibson doesn’t understand constituents

In response to the letters extolling Representative Chris Gibson, I would like to express my respect and appreciation for his exemplary military career in the service of his country. However, his experience is in no way related to the needs and concerns of his constituents.

Since his teenage years, he has been paid, fed, clothed, insured and supported by the U.S. government. He simply does not think and feel like the vast majority of his constituents. He has voted against every bill concerned with a woman’s rights to equal pay and her control over her health and body. Some of his stated proposals are nothing short of ludicrous, i.e., a string of nuclear power plants down the Hudson River and having the unemployed come work for our farmers, who can’t even support their own children.

This November, vote for Julian Schreibman for Congress. Julian’s record is just as impressive and more related to the position of congressman. Julian Schreibman was raised in Kingston, first in his family to go to college, a graduate of Yale and Yale Law School (working throughout to help cover expenses). Julian served as a federal prosecutor in Manhattan, as an assistant general counsel of the CIA, and received the attorney general’s Distinguished Service Award for the prosecution of four al-Qaida members for bombing U.S. embassies. He returned home and served as senior assistant district attorney for Ulster County. He and his wife, Shannon, have three sons. I strongly urge you to vote for the man who will truly represent you in Congress, Julian Schreibman.
