Another Yates County resident has thrown his hat into the ring for a county legislature seat.

Joseph E. Gibson (R) of Dundee will run in District 4 which covers Barrington, Milo 4 and Starkey.

He is a member of the C.A.S.T Team representing Candidates Against Spending and Taxation.

District 4 is currently represented by James Multer of Barrington, Steven Webster of Milo and William Holgate of Starkey, all Republicans who have indicated their intent to seek re-election.

Gibson narrowly lost a bid for a legislative seat when he challenged the three in the 2007 Republican Primary.

Gibson was born in Montour Falls in 1977 and has been a life-long resident of Yates County. He is a graduate of Dundee Central School and has a degree in Business Management from St. John Fisher College. He owns Cardinal Disposal and Cardinal Mini Storage. He is a member of the Republican Party and the Free and Accepted Masons.

“I am running to give a fresh perspective to our county legislature,” said Gibson. “I will have a first hand opportunity to help decide where our tax dollars are spent.”

Other candidates running as part of the C.A.S.T. team are Mary St. George and Dennis Race in District 1, Dale Lane in District 2 and Pat Galvin and Mark Morris in District 3.

“We are a bi-partisan team working together for the Yates County taxpayer,” said Gibson. “’Save the Taxpayer’ is our slogan and we feel it’s very important for the voters to get to the primary on Sept.15,” says Gibson.
