NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"Jim Gustafson will sorely be missed.  As both a County Chair and a State Committee Member, Jim was a tireless advocate for the people of Tompkins County and a leader in democratic politics.  He was also a friend to many – to know Jim was to like him.  He was a constant presence in our State Party and our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time."
