Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY - Mid-Hud­son News Net­work

For­mer state Sen. Terry Gip­son, who is try­ing to re­take the 41st Dis­trict seat from the woman who ousted him two years ago, has se­cured a fourth line on the bal­lot.

In an “op­por­tu­nity to bal­lot” pri­mary, Gip­son has been de­clared the win­ner of the Green Party line.

Gip­son also will ap­pear on the Demo­cratic, Work­ing Fam­i­lies and Women’s Equal­ity lines.

“We are just very happy to lead the way in help­ing get PCBs out of the Hud­son River, help­ing hold oil com­pa­nies ac­count­able to the pol­lu­tion that they con­tinue to sub­ject us to, keep­ing the oil barges from dock­ing in the Hud­son River, keep­ing oil trains from trav­el­ing down the Hud­son River and lead­ing the way in green poli­cies,” said Gip­son, D-Rhinebeck.

Gip­son is run­ning against Sen. Sue Serino, RHyde Park.

The 41st Se­nate Dis­trict com­prises most of Dutchess County and part of Put­nam County.
