Outgoing NY20 Congressman Scott Murphy has an office on Warren St. in Hudson. In Washington D.C., Gibson drew 70 out of 85 for office assignments, Jennifer Dlouhy in New York on the Potomac reports. "That low position ensured he would get among the worst office options and could forget about any prized view of the Capitol building," she writes. "Gibson’s new office — 502 Cannon House Office Building — is more isolated than the first-floor homes of his colleague from the Capital Region, Rep. Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., and the lawmaker he is succeeding, Rep. Scott Murphy, D-N.Y. It also is tricky to get to. Some elevators in the Cannon building do not stop on the fifth floor."
