Letters to the editor

Tedra Cobb is one of us

To the editor: I am a proud, community-minded citizen of New York’s 21st Congressional District. While I was born and raised in Clinton County, and lived the better part of my adult life here, I have been fortunate to travel throughout our country and beyond its borders. No matter the ...

We need Elise to stick around

To the editor: In all my years involved in community politics and as a member and representative of the corrections officers union at Clinton Correctional, I have had the chance to meet and work with a lot of politicians. Some manage to stick around; most just come and go. Many do barely ...

Hey Tedra, talk to all of us — not your base

To the editor: It looks like Tedra Cobb wants to attack Elise Stefanik for hosting THREE televised debates, across the entire district. She wants to go on the record and see if Tedra can do the same. But I think Cobb is scared ... scared that her radical proposals and record of tax hikes and ...

Tedra Cobb for the North Country

To the editor: I write again in support of Tedra Cobb for Congress. She is a mom who has worked hard for her family here in the North Country. She gets it. She listens. She volunteers and helps, like all of us do for our communities. She has a North Country track record of caring about ...

All or nothing

To the editor: Waiting for the rail trail is not easy. Here in Beaver River we have been publicly trying for the trail for years (11-plus), joining Adirondack Recreational Trail Advocates over six years ago and still waiting as business suffers. The railroad’s big push to get to Big Moose ...

Thank you for helping find Mulligan

To the editor: Our 5-year-old black Labrador, Mulligan, experienced an episode of seizures and a loss of his normal behavior. He took off from our home and was missing for 89 hours. This morning we received a phone call from a telephone number from the Netherlands. Not in a million years ...

A Hobofest thanks

To the editor: The 10th annual Hobofest was a rousing success thanks to the efforts and contributions of our community of sponsors, advertisers and volunteers. Today we celebrate our humble grassroots beginnings at the historic Union Depot, anchored by the 7444 Gallery and a partnership with ...

Glad to see Enterprise focus on flowers

To the editor: Kudos for your recent front-page article on flower power in Saranac Lake. This type of article is a welcome reminder of why I subscribe to Adirondack Daily Enterprise and why I live in Saranac Lake. Your article has deepened my appreciation for these stunning “earth ...

National Novel Writing Month is coming

To the editor: To the editor: Have you ever thought about writing a novel? How about writing a complete novel in one month? Sounds impossible, right? Well, not only is it possible, but a lot of people around the world do it every November via National Novel Writing Month. It’s a nonprofit ...

Lindy Ellis for Franklin County legislator

To the editor: I’m writing in support of Lindy Ellis for Franklin County legislator. I first met Lindy several years ago and have interacted with her on various occasions. She has impressive skills in dealing with issues in a clear, logical fashion, working with others, encouraging a ...

An unnecessary road closure during Ironman

To the editor: After 20 years of Ironman and now two years of the half-Ironman, you would think the road closure issues would be worked out and a smooth, efficient operation. And it may be but for one glaring flaw in the system: Old Military Road at the intersection of Route 86. For some ...

Ironman 70.3 was particularly clean, gracious

To the editor: Keeping the debate of economics aside, Ironman 70.3 deserves a thank-you for their efficiency in setting up and taking down of this huge event. Lake Placid is used to hosting the influx of large groups of athletes, but what is often left behind is another matter. Taking a ...

Re-elect Hochul

To the editor: I have known our lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul, for many years. I supported her in her two congressional runs. She is in a tight upstate-vs.-downstate primary race. Bizarrely, the winner of the lieutenant governor primary will run on a ticket with the winner or the ...

Cobb won’t dodge North Country voters

To the editor: It should come as no surprise that Elise Stefanik has refused to appear at the Adirondack Daily Enterprise’s proposed debate among candidates for the congressional seat in the 21st District. Stefanik has consistently ducked opportunities to personally appear before ...

I support Cobb

To the editor: I am writing to support Tedra Cobb in her bid to be our representative in Congress. I served for four years on the St. Lawrence County legislature from 1990 to 1994. I am very familiar with the demands and responsibilities of that position. County government provides many ...

Voting for Cobb can help the U.S.

To the editor: As we listen to the news from Washington these days, there is an increasing level of alarm for many of us. As the progress toward equality and justice made over the past half-century erodes, it becomes very clear, and urgent, that something has to change. We have called and ...

Follow the money

To the editor: “Representative to Congress.” Nice title. It should mean someone who actually represents the people of the district. Stefanik claims to represent us, but she has voted against the Clean Power Plan, which protects our region from out-of-state pollution, acid rain, etc. ...

Stefanik solicitor was rude

To the editor: This morning a man from the campaign for Elise Stefanik called to ask for my support. I politely responded that I was supporting Tedra Cobb. As I started to explain why, he hung up on me. There was no exchange of ideas or discussion of policies, just a click that ended the ...

Fake news or fake candidate?

To the editor: I continue to read with wonder, then amusement and then outright laughter about Elise Stefanik’s Democratic opponent. First she tells folks she cannot tell people how she feels about assault weapons to get elected. Second she calls a press conference where she said she ...

Tedra Cobb will vote for us

To the editor: We are all consumers. Most of us have to, or have had to, work for a living. We count on being protected in the marketplace and in the workplace — against being defrauded, being victims of dubious businesses practices and being required to work without appropriate wage ...
