Letter: Support Cobb in 21st District Dem primary

“Tedra Cobb embodies the independence, grit and kindness of the North Country. Her election effort has exhibited the leadership necessary to bring the district the kind of candidate we deserve: one who listens, one who is accessible to the constituents and one who is representative of our best selves.”


On June 26, New York state voters will have an opportunity to cast an important primary vote for our representation in Congressional District 21 for the 116th Congress. There are many qualified candidates on the Democratic side, but one has set herself apart as most deserving: Tedra Cobb.

Considering the many reasons to choose a candidate, these stand out: integrity, energy, intention, leadership and experience. Tedra Cobb is the only candidate who matches all criteria with a record of elected public service and bipartisanship.

Unlike our current representative, Elise Stefanik, Cobb has lived in the district for decades, raised a family and started a business, all the while serving her community. With a pubic record of accountability, Cobb’s supporters in her home county of St. Lawrence enthusiastically embrace her candidacy, providing us with the largest number of petition signatures of any Democratic congressional candidate in this race –which bodes well for the election win in the fall.

Tedra Cobb embodies the independence, grit and kindness of the North Country. Her election effort has exhibited the leadership necessary to bring the district the kind of candidate we deserve: one who listens, one who is accessible to the constituents and one who is representative of our best selves. It’s for these reasons that I ask you to vote for Tedra Cobb to represent the people of Congressional District 21.
