“I want people to know who I am; why I’m running and why they should vote for me, and that strategy has been consistent through the primary and it will be consistent through the general election,” Cobb told The Sun.
Tedra Cobb, who has eschewed corporate PAC money and accounts it a privilege to concern herself with the well-being of her neighbors in our district.
The ad’s accusation that Cobb voted to raise taxes on everything from “candy to water to gasoline” is a reference to sales tax.
Elise Stefanik would like voters to believe that she does not support the dysfunction in Washington under Donald Trump. Yet her behavior on the campaign trail, thus far, is straight out of Donald Trump’s playbook.
Tedra L. Cobb, Democratic candidate for the 21st Congressional District, has focused on health care as a central part of her campaign since entering the race. “The driving point is health care for all,” she said. “This is core, this is central, to why I’m running.” Ms. Cobb has been open to different solutions, including …
“It affects people’s lives in northern New York, it’s not theoretical issues just to be discussed in Washington, we need to discuss them here,” she said. “The reality is, repealing the Affordable Care Act will cut off services to people who need health care.”
I must confess that I was somewhat amused by Howard Hirsch’s letter to the editor on June 25 criticizing the Watertown Daily Times for providing “free advertising” to Tedra Cobb, specifically letters from Tedra’s supporters, while not printing “even one letter in support of Elise Stefanik.” First of all, the Watertown Daily Times saw fit …
Congratulations to Tedra Cobb on winning the New York District 21 Democratic primary with an overwhelming majority on June 26. We now need to continue that momentum and work together to get Tedra Cobb’s ethical and intelligent voice to Washington! She will help set a new tone and work hard for the residents of our …
One of the things that was notable about the Democratic primary was that candidates were, in general, highly respectful of one another. The tone has now changed. The incumbent Elise Stefanik has entered the ring, and her campaign showed zero hesitation, launching misleading attack ads in less than 12 hours. First, Stefanik made a Facebook …
We need to send Tedra Cobb, a leader, to Congress, solely committed to serving the needs of the 21st District.
Maybe in Manda and Stefanik’s privileged world, like in the darkest corners of the Internet, “trolling” can be mistaken for hard work.
Voters want the facts, not “gotcha” name-calling and “hyper-political” rhetoric. Elise Stefanik is labeling Tedra Cobb a “tax and spend liberal.” Stefanik claimed that Cobb voted to increase taxes more than 20 times as a St. Lawrence County legislator. By checking the source, https://www.stlawco.org/Departments/BoardofLegislators/BoardMeetingMinuteArchives, you find the Stefanik campaign repeatedly misread or purposely misled. Its statements …
Tedra Cobb has been attacked by the Stefanik campaign as “the out-of-touch, liberal, hyper-partisan, tax-and-spend candidate,” accused of having voted 21 times to raise taxes when a county legislator. The Stefanik campaign listed its “sources,” which makes fact-checking a straightforward matter.
Tedra Cobb has pledged to work to overturn Citizens United and get big money out of politics. It is ruining our great country and tearing us apart.
Tedra Cobb is not one supported by political machines scheming to get votes and angling to make a career in Washington. She is running because she cares!
Tedra Cobb fought for an ethics bill as a legislator. Actions speak louder than words.
Tedra Cobb is a tough North Country professional who can stand up to Elise Stefanik’s political machine and win. In Congress she will work for the local issues I care about: peace, safe schools, health care for all, our environment and an economy that works for everybody.
Tedra Cobb is applying for the job. With her 30 years of living, working and serving in the district, she more than meets the requirements. The incumbent meets none of the requirements. Not only that, Stefanik does not live in the district, never has, probably never will.
Tedra Cobb wants to represent all constituents in the 21st Congressional District and is not looking to climb the ladder in Washington.
This is not about party loyalties; this is literally about ethics and survival. Tedra Cobb will be an authentic representative for the real people of our area.
We, the people of NY-21, should finance our own campaigns. Elect neighbors who will represent our interests and not those of the super-rich from far away. Preserve our democracy. Vote for Tedra Cobb in November.
Today (Aug. 7) in a Facebook post, Elise Stefanik made several claims about her opponent that are clear distortions of fact. Never mind that Ms. Stefanik is now resorting to infantile name-calling; she’s also making claims about her opponent that are blatantly untrue. Ms. Stefanik said that, “As a St. Lawrence County Legislator, Taxin’ …
Stefanik knows that her assertions are untrue; the St. Lawrence County records have been widely published, yet Stefanik has chosen to make false statements the focus of an attack on Tedra Cobb.
Cobb’s values are rooted in ethics. She is a mature, grounded candidate whose wisdom and charisma enable her to reach across the aisle in search of ethical solutions.
Cobb Clinches NYSUT Endorsement
An Elise Stefanik TV ad that the campaign calls “Clear Choice” leads with the assertion that “Tedra Cobb voted to raise taxes 20 times. Taxing everything from candy to water to gas.” Tedra Cobb, a Democrat, is running against Republican incumbent Stefanik for the congressional seat in New York’s 21st District. The Stefanik campaign …
Tedra shows by her actions what she will represent in Washington: our North Country interests.
Letter to the Editor April 12, 2018 Press Republican There are many complex problems around the world that now make things seem less hopeful or safe for coming generations. Changes in weather have brought hardship, even loss of life, in our country alone. There seems to also be a turning away from others by disregarding …
Letter to the Editor April 11, 2018 Adirondack Daily Enterprise I enthusiastically endorse Tedra Cobb for Congress. Here’s why: Tedra has worked and brought her family up in the North Country, so she understands our challenges, our needs and our communities. She has twice been elected to public office, showing that she knows how to …
I have chosen to support Tedra because of her extensive background in health care, private business and public service.
