Letter: Cobb would fight corporate career politicians

“The point of this letter is to say that Tedra Cobb will be a strong and committed voice to fight against many of the positions that the big-money, pro-corporate, career politicians so desperately need to maintain. Tedra, a longtime resident of the district, understands the issues facing those of us living in northern New York.”


This letter is written in support of Tedra Cobb, who is running to be our representative in New York’s 21st Congressional District.

Often, political letters supporting new challengers focus on what the incumbent is doing wrong. Indeed, this letter could be very long if that were the case. It would mention all the recent insults to our democracy, the environment and the stability of the nation committed by the current Republican administration. It would note the lack of regard for working-class people and the paucity of common decency and integrity in government that has become the hallmark of this administration. It would focus on how the current representative, Elise Stefanik, is in place to do the bidding of this larger Republican machine while not truly acknowledging or understanding the issues of this northern New York district.

The point of this letter is to say that Tedra Cobb will be a strong and committed voice to fight against many of the positions that the big-money, pro-corporate, career politicians so desperately need to maintain. Tedra, a longtime resident of the district, understands the issues facing those of us living in northern New York. She understands the need to develop the economy but preserve the environment, to find affordable health care solutions for every citizen, to get big money out of politics and, most importantly, to truly represent the people of this district. She will do this with integrity and she will work for us, the North Country residents. Please support Tedra Cobb.

Sincerely,
