What does it say about our representative in Congress that she keeps making false attacks on her challenger? Stefanik has consistently misrepresented Tedra Cobb’s record as a county legislator. And what does it say about our representative in Congress that she keeps resorting to childish name-calling in her TV ads? Shouldn’t we in the North Country be able to expect a little civility from our rep?
If, after nearly four years in Washington, the best Stefanik can do is to smear her opponent with silly name-calling and falsehoods, it is high time she be replaced. If, after nearly four years in Washington, the only way Stefanik can campaign at all is to rely on massive donations from far-away special interest groups and out-of-state PACs who have no particular connection to our way of life in northern New York, it is time for a change.
As a neighbor of Tedra Cobb’s for over 20 years, I know how tirelessly committed she will be once she goes to Washington to represent us. I remember her banging nails when she and her hubby built their house by hand. And I have known her to work magic to help people come together in community meetings. Her energy knows no bounds! She is the kind of problem-solver we in the 21st District deserve. (And for good measure, Tedra actually does live in northern New York!)
This is our chance to vote for a genuine representative. Please, on Nov. 6, cast your vote for Tedra Cobb!
