Jamestown-native announces run for Congress...

A man who was born in Jamestown and raised in Randolph and was a top military aide for the Obama Adminstration has announced that he's running for Congress.  Former National Security Council Director of Defense Policy and Strategy John Plumb has announced his candidacy for the 23rd Congressional seat, currently held by incumbant Republican Tom Reed.  Plumb says he's running because he's heard from -- "too many families who feel Washington just isn't listening to the rural communities of Western New York, the Southern Tier, and the Finger Lake region."  The 45 year-old Plumb adds -- "they're right."  The current Naval Reserve Commander first served as a submarine officer in the Navy.  He tells the Buffalo News today that "I don't think he's represented the area very well."  Plumb cited Reed's vote to shut down the Department of Homeland Security in a budget dispute.
