Is there anything a politician hates more than facts? Elise Stefanik has fooled people into believing she lives in the 21st Congressional District. Consider the facts that can be found in the 2018 Final Assessment Roll for the town of Willsboro, Essex County, New York: Tax map parcel number 21.10-1-22.200; Owner: Stefanik, Melanie E.; Address: P.O. Box 22, Feura Bush, NY 12067; Property address: 134 Lakeshore Drive, Family Residence, Waterfront, 0.20 acres; Land assessment: $119,000; Total assessment: $419,000.
Elise Stefanik never attended Willsboro Central School. She attended a private school in the Albany area. Bunking occasionally in her parents’ summer “cottage” hardly qualiﬁes as living in Willsboro. Ms. Stefanik recently married, but it was outside the 21st C.D., at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs. I’m pretty sure she and her new husband aren’t living at 134 Lakeshore Drive.
I live in the North Country, but I’m not as gullible as Stefanik and her Washington insiders think. The truth, the facts, prove that Elise Stefanik does not live and has never lived in this Congressional District. Her non-residency makes it impossible for her to connect with the needs of the people who live and work in the 21st. Examine her voting record, look at her campaign donors, and make your own judgment.
