Former Congressman Gibson Draws Fans To Book-Signing

Former Congressman Gibson

Draws Fans To Book-Signing

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Gibson signs a book for Tyler Gregory after praising the Franklin Central junior for his commitment to tending the formerly decrepit Ouelette Cemetery. With Tyler is mom Laura.

ONEONTA – You could almost hear his former constituents’ sighs of relief to hear former Congressman Chris Gibson being, well, just Chris Gibson at a book-signing for his new book, “Rally Point: Five Tasks to Unite the Country and Revitalize the American Dream” this evening at Black Oak Books in Southside Mall, Oneonta.

During remarks to the gathering, an attendee praised Gibson for promising to retire after three terms, and then doing so.  As a military man (a retired colonel), he replied, “What we say is what we mean. When you are in combat, you have to keep your word.”
