Opinion: Seward, Lopez, and Gibson a Winning Team

Written By Editor on 10/16/14 | 10/16/14

While there has been significant concern about some local officials over the last several years, it is clear that Schoharie County is well served by its representatives to the state and federal governments.

Congressman Chris Gibson has repeatedly assisted communities hit by flooding. He helped resolve a three-year old FEMA funding issue for the Town of Schoharie and was personally thanked by Supervisor Gene Milone. His work on behalf of farmers and against Lyme disease show his local concern for the area. His bipartisan work has assisted officials of both parties.

Assemblyman Peter Lopez has served the residents of the area for over thirty years now. His swift action in 2012 prevented flooding during Hurricane Sandy. He has fought for and won funding and recognition for Upstate communities even as Assemblymen from Downstate dominate the chamber. His actions following Hurricane Irene are still talked about and remains a responsive advocate for local residents.

Senator Jim Seward has fought consistently for the towns and villages he serves. Just recently he successfully gained hundreds of thousands of dollars of funding for the streambank mitigation project. He has also played a major role in assisting communities with grant funds and flood recovery efforts.

This November remember the actions of these representatives and how they've helped shape the recovery over the last three years.
