I am concerned that we are in a political climate where people who don't wish to respond to the voices of their constituents simply ignore the demand for clarity.
We have a president who refuses to show his tax returns and makes up fictitious events, a nominee for the Supreme Court who has 100,000 pages of materials expressing his views which he refuses to reveal, and a congresswoman, Elise Stefanik, who will only speak in a monitored situation and without input from the people she is supposed to represent.
Ms. Stefanik doesn't even deign to respond to the demands of the citizens to have more debates that are public. Her last performances were entirely scripted. When one question slipped through, she said she would "agree to disagree." That's OK if you're talking about whether you like fish, but it is not acceptable when one of you is voting in a harmful way for the population.
Ms. Stefanik doesn't even respond herself, but has a member of her vast staff answer for her. This is a person who doesn't live here, never has and doesn't have a clue what we need. She has been bought and paid for by big corporations and the 1 percent who definitely doesn't live in the 21st District of New York state.
We need Tedra Cobb! She is honest and hard working and she will represent us. If you have a question for her, just ask.
