SENATOR TERRY GIPSON’S STATEMENT ON THE METRO-NORTH TRAIN DERAILMENT
“My thoughts and condolences are with Nancy Montgomery and Jim Lovell’s entire family, as well as all those affected by this tragedy. I am fortunate to have known Jim, and his passing is a great loss to the Philipstown community, Putnam County and the entire Hudson Valley region. He shall be missed.
“The MTA Hudson Commuter Line serves Dutchess and Putnam everyday. We need to focus on discovering answers as to how this happened, and more importantly, how we prevent any recurrence of this heartbreaking accident.”
