To the editor:
I am a retired nurse and the mother of a COVID survivor. I am deeply resentful of the callous attitude shown by Rep. Stefanik as she glibly lies about the Trump administration’s response to the spread of this virus.
Ask the exhausted and frightened health care workers throughout this nation how well we are doing, how their personal protective equipment and needed medications are holding up. Their stories are quite different from the ones that Stefanik and Trump tell.
If you’ve ever been sick, you know that little else can be rightly cared for until you are well again yourself. Until our government acknowledges the severity of living in a pandemic and addresses it with the seriousness it deserves, abandoning their fairy tales of “rounding the corner” and “magically disappearing,” we will not be able to come to terms with the economy, civil rights, health care or anything else.
Elise Stefanik, along with the president she emulates, has emerged as an abysmal protector of our health and welfare.
Tedra Cobb has been working for the betterment of her community her entire adult life. She has been an active board member for agencies that serve the sick, the dying, the abused. She served honorably and effectively for two terms as a St. Lawrence County legislator. As the executive director of the St. Lawrence County Health Initiative, she was ahead of the curve working to make health care available and affordable.
In Washington, she will not give up. She will not look the other way. She will tackle problems head-on and work with others to find real solutions.
Vote for Tedra Cobb for Congress.
