Tea party leader, Joe Gilbert, enters race for 21st Congressional District

Joe Gilbert, a tea party leader from St. Lawrence County, has entered the race for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, in 2014.

“It is the House of Representatives, and I don’t think the people are being represented any more,” Gilbert said Saturday in a telephone interview.

Gilbert, a retired Army major, is director of emergency services for St. Lawrence County.

He is the second candidate to announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination in the 21st Congressional District, which includes Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties.

Elise Stefanik, a business woman from Willsboro, announced her candidacy Tuesday.
