Congressman Gibson’s accomplishments

November 1, 2012

I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Congressman Chris Gibson during his reelection campaign. What I saw in him was a man of conviction, honor and true leadership.

Congressman Gibson has accomplished a tremendous amount while serving in Congress. He led the effort to save the federal broadband loan program, he helped to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating spilled milk like spilled oil, he got needed federal aid to upstate New York after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee and he has accomplished various other goals.

That being said, what truly stuck out in my mind as something that puts him a head above all others is the hands-on approach that he takes when dealing with district and constituent operations. His office apparently handles 80 to 90 constituent cases a week and has been instrumental in everything from ensuring an individual gets their needed Medicare or Social Security checks to veterans getting their earned medals and honors and to visa applicants having a chance to navigate our convoluted immigration and visa systems.

He has dedicated tremendous time and effort in helping those that he can. For that reason, I am dedicating my time to helping him and ask that you join me, whether it is volunteering, talking to friends and family, or with your vote.
