Congressman Arcuri reacts to Gillibrand appointment

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Michael A. Arcuri today released the following statement regarding Governor Paterson’s appointment of Representative Kirsten Gillibrand to the U.S. Senate:

“I am pleased with Governor Paterson’s selection of an Upstate New Yorker, who knows our issues first-hand and always puts our state before partisan politics. Congresswoman Gillibrand understands that the New York State economy doesn’t just include Wall Street, but also agriculture, manufacturing and more. Over the last two years, I have worked closely with Congresswoman Gillibrand to secure critical support for local dairy farms. I look forward to continuing to work with Congresswoman Gillibrand, a fellow member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog caucus, to grow the Upstate New York economy and create new jobs.”
