Washington, D.C.  – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik spoke on the House floor to recognize the 40th anniversary of the founding of The Chronicle Weekly newspaper:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 40th anniversary of the founding of The Chronicle weekly newspaper, in my district.

The Chronicle was established by Mark Frost in 1980 in Glens Falls, New York. Through hard work and determination, Mark turned an initial investment of $1,700 into a successful newspaper and small business. He remains the publisher and editor today, alongside their team who have been with the Chronicle for decades. In that time, The Chronicle has established a loyal base of readers and advertisers, becoming truly a cornerstone of the community.

The Chronicle has long hosted events to provide a forum for discussion and to bring Glens Falls residents together, especially through The Chronicle Book Fair. The fair is an opportunity to highlight and connect local authors and publishers and discover books of all genres. Annual events like this are important to strengthen and grow the fabric of our communities and I know many who are looking forward to safely resuming them as soon as possible.

On behalf of New York’s 21st district and the United States Congress, I would like to thank Mark Frost, his family, and the entire Chronicle staff for their contributions to the community and congratulate them on reaching this important 40-year milestone.
