Cobb will oppose erosion of our democracy

I met Tedra Cobb at last year’s Clinton County Fair, was impressed with her from our first conversation and, after several subsequent conversations, have come to have hope. Were Tedra Cobb our congresswoman, I know she would have opposed the American Healthcare Act, and I would have been able to speak with her personally instead of standing in a parking lot outside a Plattsburgh office during a protest. When she becomes our congresswoman, I am confident that she will raise her voice and cast her votes to combat the raw corruption that is gnawing at the core of our democracy.

Stefanik doesn’t meet with her constituents

How many of us living in New York’s 21st Congressional District have ever met Elise Stefanik? How many have actually been in the same room with her? We gave her a job when we elected her to Congress. Since then, she has shown little interest in getting to know the north country people and the unique challenges facing us.

Letter to the Editor: Count on Tedra Cobb to protect your healthcare

Stefanik has never lived in the district, but Tedra Cobb on the other hand actually lives in the North Country and understands that health care is a huge issue for most of us. For 30 years, Tedra has lived and served her community in St. Lawrence County. She’s been a volunteer firefighter, served on the county Legislature and founded a health service organization. She built her business here and knows and cares about the people in her district. She raised her family here. As a member of Congress, you can count on Tedra to vote to protect you, the ACA, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.

Letter: Comparing Two Candidacies for Congress

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 …

Letter: Research Will Lead Voters to Support Cobb

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 …

Letter: Stefanik Campaign Misleads on Tedra Cobb

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 …

Letter: Stefanik Gets Facts Wrong on Cobb’s Record

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,, you find the Stefanik campaign repeatedly misread or purposely misled. Its statements …
