U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has visited all of New York State’s 62 counties in 2023. She was in Rensselaer County on Thursday, the last of the 62 counties.

She was in Orleans County on Aug. 18, when she announced a $2 million federal grant to go towards a new emergency management office for the county.

“Visiting every one of New York State’s 62 counties is important to understanding the issues facing our communities,” she said in a statement. “From small business owners in New York City to farmers across Upstate to families in every community focused on health care, jobs and education, New Yorkers face many challenges and meeting with them face to face helps me be a better senator. I am honored to represent New Yorkers and I am committed to fighting for families from every corner of our state.”
