Tedra Cobb Discusses the Future of Health Care in Watertown During Trump’s Visit

Letter: Comparing Two Candidacies for Congress

I must confess that I was somewhat amused by Howard Hirsch’s letter to the editor on June 25 criticizing the Watertown Daily Times for providing “free advertising” to Tedra Cobb, specifically letters from Tedra’s supporters, while not printing “even one letter in support of Elise Stefanik.” First of all, the Watertown Daily Times saw fit …

Letter: Stefanik Not Telling Truth About Cobb

  Today (Aug. 7) in a Facebook post, Elise Stefanik made several claims about her opponent that are clear distortions of fact. Never mind that Ms. Stefanik is now resorting to infantile name-calling; she’s also making claims about her opponent that are blatantly untrue.

Letter: Heat Levels a Sign of Worse to Come

It’s summer 2018, and the Northern Hemisphere is burning. Is this a surprise? Well, not to me. It’s just another indication of global warming, and we can expect more to come in the future. How hot is it? In our own area, we have been under “heat advisories” several times, and for several consecutive days …

Fact Check: Stefanik’s ‘Clear Choice’ Ad Exaggerates Tax Claims

  An Elise Stefanik TV ad that the campaign calls “Clear Choice” leads with the assertion that “Tedra Cobb voted to raise taxes 20 times.
