Citing efforts to make the tax code fairer, limit malpractice lawsuits and bureaucratic regulations he said inhibit economic growth, and help the region recover from last year's tropical storms, U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson said Monday he plans to run on his record.

Gibson, R-Kinderhook, is a first-term congressman in the 20th Congressional District who will face Democrat Julian Schreibman of Stone Ridge in this fall's campaign to represent the new 19th Congressional District.

Speaking at a campaign kickoff event that drew more than 100 people to his town of Ulster headquarters on Ulster Avenue, Gibson spoke of the importance of controlling costs he said impede growth in the forms of taxes, government regulation, health care, and energy.
