U.S. Senator Gillibrand talks economics in Queensbury

QUEENSBURY - When just a teenager, Kirsten Gillibrand says the first live concert she saw was at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

"The Clash," Senator Gillibrand (D - New York) said. "Do you remember they were there? Yeah, Rock the Casbah. I could humm that quicker than remembering the name of the band."

Now the future of the Civic Center is questionable with the Adirondack Phantoms hockey team about to leave.

That was mentioned more than once Wednesday afternoon by north country leaders concerned about the loss of business.

"If you can skate and have a little money and would like to buy a hockey team you're welcome here at the Glens Falls Civic Center because we are in need of a hockey team," said former Glens Falls Mayor Ed Bartholomew.

Economic concerns were a common theme as the Senator mostly listened, taking notes.
