Two local-area congressmen known for civil debate and bipartisan cooperation--Chris Gibson (Republican, 19th district) and Paul Tonko (Democrat, 20th district)--held a public conversation at Skidmore's Tang Museum on Oct. 10. Their discussion, "What Happened to Compromise? A Conversation About the Role of Civility in Congress and Daily Life," was moderated by Alexander Heffner, the host of PBS's "The Open Mind." The Congressmen covered issues ranging from the upcoming election to the future of political discourse and also took questions from the audience.
