Letter: Vote for Cobb Because It’s Time for a Change

Tedra Cobb has pledged to work to overturn Citizens United and get big money out of politics. It is ruining our great country and tearing us apart.


New representation is needed in our district that will serve us and not the interests of crony-capitalism. Elise Stefanik is an out-of-touch puppet from the world of Karl Rove and the dark money he represents. Already Fox News and NRA-TV have put out false stories about her opponent. Tedra Cobb has pledged to work to overturn Citizens United and get big money out of politics. It is ruining our great country and tearing us apart.

The tragedy is that the negative consequences of this Congress may not be clear for years because the country is too distracted to see it. Let’s get the outside interest groups out of our district. The balance of power in Washington is skewed to the elites who have no understanding or empathy for what the working class, low income or youths of our nation trying to get an education and find their place in this world want now or need for a safe and strong future. And why wouldn’t the wealthy want the same for all of us if they believe in the good of humanity? Wasn’t it they who advocated for public education, health and women’s rights? The list goes on.

I heard Jeff Graham on his radio show July 17 question whether anyone who signs the front of a paycheck would vote for Tedra Cobb. He then proceeded to agitate the mob with more incendiary comments, which clearly amused him but were factually misleading. The comments seemed irresponsible, but then I remembered that Jeff Graham is “not a journalist.” We shouldn’t be re-electing people over and over again anyway. It’s insanity. Vote for Cobb; it’s time for a change!
