first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIt was refreshing and encouraging to read the article about former congressman, Chris Gibson, and his new book, “Rally Point.”Even though I may have many philosophical differences with him, I have always respected his integrity and devotion to serving not only his constituents, but our country as well. His commitment to term limits and campaign finance reform is admirable, even though we lost a fine member of Congress when he honored them.Should he decide to re-enter the political arena in the future, I believe he would be a major force helping to end the untenable divide inflicting our country and aid in bringing a semblance of integrity and effectiveness to our government.I would hope to see him begin that process by becoming a U.S. senator from New York to fill the vacancy created when we elect the future President Kirsten Gillibrand.Carl YanochScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more
