Gillibrand Thanks Donors for ‘Support,’ Wishes ‘Blessings of the Season’

ALBANY—Here’s a holiday card from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, which was sent to her donors via e-mail this morning.

“Thank you so much for your very generous support and dedication you have shown me over this year,” Gillibrand wrote on the card, which shows her family at their Hudson home. “I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with all the blessings of the season!”

Gillibrand got a rough ride today from the Post, which after describing how she ducked an interview about supporting a health care bill that may cost New York money also dubbed her Jelly-brand on the editorial page.

An aide to the senator told me hard copies of the card were also mailed to some A-list supporters, similar to David Paterson. Unlike many (most every?) e-mails Gillibrand sends to her supporters, this did not contain a fund-raising appeal. The donation button was one click away.
