Former St. Lawrence County Legislator Leads In Key Indicators
CANTON, N.Y. –– Today, Tedra Cobb, local small business owner, former St. Lawrence County Legislator and Democratic candidate for New York’s 21st Congressional District released her campaign success metrics for 2017. Cobb entered the race on July 4, 2017.
In 2017, Cobb amassed:
- $214,296 in total contributions
- $162,697 cash-on-hand – a burn rate of only 24%
- Over 850 individual donors, 77% from within the 21st congressional district
- Over 430 individual volunteers from throughout the district
- More than 125 public appearances throughout the district
- More than 1,600 likes and followers on Facebook
“By every measure, my campaign is strong and gaining momentum. I owe this to my supporters and to my volunteer leadership team who are organizing in all 12 counties across NY-21. I’m grateful for the generous financial support and volunteer hours that the residents of this district continue to provide to my campaign.
“I am running so that Northern New Yorkers have representation in Washington from someone who, unlike Elise Stefanik, is rooted in this district, and is prepared to listen to and be accountable to her constituents. I pledge that as a Congresswoman, I will hold 12 public town halls per year, one in each county. In contrast to our current Representative, I’m not afraid to face my constituents, listen to their concerns, and explain my votes.
“I appreciate the confidence shown in me by the majority who voted for me among a crowded field in last Sunday’s straw poll in Glens Falls. Their support, along with the generous financial contributions of many individual donors, bolsters my belief that I am the candidate who can beat Elise Stefanik. I will work tirelessly to earn the nomination and, if I win this seat, to serve the people of NY-21.”
The campaign calls on Northern New York’s voters and leaders to recognize that in order to defeat Stefanik we need to pool the time, energy and resources of New York’s 21st Congressional District behind an experienced and viable candidate.
