Tedra Cobb Endorsed by Capital Region Our Revolution

Capital New York Progressive Action Network (NYPAN) awards the Our Revolution endorsement to Tedra Cobb, democratic Congressional candidate for New York’s 21st district. As an affiliate of Our Revolution, the membership of Capital NYPAN voted to endorse Tedra Cobb as the candidate most capable of advancing the social, economic, and political issues that matter most to residents in New York’s 21st district.

Cobb, one of five remaining democratic candidates, embodies the values espoused by Our Revolution. Our Revolution endorses candidates who support such issues as expanding health care for all, fighting income and wealth inequality, and getting Big Money out of politics. Additionally, Cobb has two-term legislative experience in New York’s St. Lawrence County where she consistently advocated to protect the interests of her constituents.

“It is more than an honor to get the Our Revolution endorsement. It is humbling and, at the same time, inspiring to be recognized as the candidate who is of the people, for the people as I seek to serve and represent the residents of upstate New York,” said Cobb.

Tedra Cobb’s professional experiences in health care and education further qualify her for the Our Revolution endorsement. Cobb has been a life-long advocate and champion for persons who work hard every day to provide for their families and themselves.

Tom Goodfellow, Capital NYPAN co-chair, stated, “Tedra impressed me with her depth of experience in public service. From health care, to education, to victims’ rights advocacy, to ESL (English as a Second Language) certification, Tedra Cobb is a strong, qualified candidate capable of winning in November 2018.”

The NYS primary for the Congressional race is June 26, 2018.

Capital NYPAN evolved from the former Bernie Sanders Network and continues with an expressed purpose to support and advance progressive candidates and policies. During the presidential primary Capital NYPAN organized and continues to have a presence in Congressional Districts 19, 20, and 21, including through Capital NYPAN North, which is also the lead organization in the Coalition for NY21 Progressives.
