After a Democratic primary where the candidates failed to make each other accountable to the real issues that North Country residents feel every day, many are left wondering how Tedra Cobb feels about Nancy Pelosi and Andrew Cuomo. She has repeatedly avoided answering these questions, even when asked to her directly. Being a member of Congress requires the ability to be forthright with constituents, even when the questions are difficult and there isn’t a good answer. However, with these two huge mysteries hanging over the election, how can anybody trust her to keep her word? Washington is in the middle of an accountability crisis, and Tedra Cobb’s actions have demonstrated that she would only continue this atrocity that we have to deal with in our daily lives.
