Gibson posts message to Vets and Cuomo asks citizens to stay involved

Congressman-elect Chris Gibson updated his Facebook status (which he then tweeted a link to) this morning with this message:

On Veterans' Day we remember all those who served to protect our freedoms and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our cherished way of life. May God Bless their resting souls and their families. Let us also remember and reach out to those grievously wounded and to those suffereing (sic) post-traumatic stress. Finally, we take pause to be thankful - our country is truly blessed. Chris & Mary Jo

During his 24-year Army career, Gibson served through four tours in Iraq.

Also this morning, Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo appeared on WOR 710's The John Gambling Show. Echoing his new video, Cuomo called for New Yorkers to take a more active role in state Government.

"You have to bring the people into the game," said Cuomo.

Cuomo also said he would work to keep the trial of 9/11 "mastermind" Khalid Sheikh Mohammed out of the state, and said he "needs the facts" on hydrofracking for natural gas.
