Letter: Cobb Could Help Restore Ethics in the System

Tedra Cobb wants to represent all constituents in the 21st Congressional District and is not looking to climb the ladder in Washington.

I’m responding to Bart Bonner’s letter in the July 22 edition of the Watertown Daily Times (“Elise Stefanik is fighting to save our country”).

I usually take Mr. Bonner’s comments with a grain of salt, knowing his point of view is usually based in bigotry and a lack of compassion for others. But some parts of his letter ring true. Yes, Tedra Cobb is a good woman and would serve the country well, but he is especially correct in that we have a choice to make. Voting Democratic could well mean that the impeachment process might start and it will also help to bring our government back to a sane mode of operation. Ethics may come back into vogue. We will protect the rights of all citizens, show compassion for those truly in need here and around the world, globally engage to control those who would oppress others; and, yes, there might even be some common sense controls on gun violence. Republicans have shown they are willing to acquiesce to a dictator wannabe to promote allegiance to the 1 percent.

Tedra Cobb wants to represent all constituents in the 21st Congressional District and is not looking to climb the ladder in Washington. She has the forceful charismatic personality that one needs in Congress and has shown through her experience that she is her own person who won’t blindly go along with party leadership. Tedra is the real deal and deserves our support.
