Letter: Tedra Cobb has her heart in north country

“Unlike many politicians who vie for a congressional seat in our district, Tedra raised her family here. She has owned a business here and has a personal stake in our community.”


I am writing to express my support for Tedra Cobb in the upcoming congressional primary in June. I have met Tedra on a couple of occasions, and I am consistently impressed with her tireless dedication to the north country.

Unlike many politicians who vie for a congressional seat in our district, Tedra raised her family here. She has owned a business here and has a personal stake in our community.

As a working mother with a young family, I have many concerns about the state of our government and strongly believe Tedra is the candidate who will truly work with our community as her top priority. Tedra is an experienced legislator with the proven skillset to work across the aisle and successfully advocate for her constituents.

Tedra consistently delivers action over rhetoric. She has already hosted more than 170 events throughout the north country and, if elected, has pledged to hold a town hall in each county of our district every year that she is in office. She wants to meet her constituents, to hear our voices and to truly represent us.

This accountability and accessibility is not something I have seen from Elise Stefanik. And unlike Ms. Stefanik, Tedra’s support is based in the north country. Her family is north country, and her heart is in the north country. If elected, she will fight for us, listen to us and be the true representative NY-21 needs in Congress.
