Gibson loses North Country turf

Listen to this story
Congressman Chris Gibson issued a statement last night acknowledging that he will no longer represent counties in the North Country, based on a federal redistricting plan finalized yesterday.

Gibson, a Republican from Kinderhook, says he will seek re-election in the newly-formed 19th congressional district, which doesn't include Essex, Warren, or Washington counties.

"I am saddened that many areas of the historic 20th district have been placed in two other districts," Gibson said. He also promised that his office would continue to provide constituent services to North Country communities until the new district boundaries take effect in 2013.
