A leader in Northern New York
Tedra Cobb has spent decades fighting for her community in Northern New York. Tedra worked on providing HIV/AIDS testing and education in rural NY communities and started a community health agency to provide access to health screenings and treatment. In 2002, Tedra won a longshot campaign to the St. Lawrence County Legislature, where she fought to pass ethics reform and lower the cost of prescription drugs.
A long record of fighting for ethics reform
In the St. Lawrence County Legislature, Tedra pushed for and passed a tough ethics law to enforce financial disclosure requirements that brought more transparency to potential conflicts of interest from elected officials. Tedra’s work on ethics in the St. Lawrence County Legislature earned her an appointment to the New York State Committee on Open Government. In Congress, Tedra will continue to fight to make sure that elected officials are transparent and are working for the people.
An opportunity to flip a swing district
Tedra enters the 2020 cycle as the presumptive nominee, as is well-positioned to take the fight to incumbent Rep. Elise Stefanik. Raising impressive money early, Tedra has repeatedly drawn attention to Stefanik’s record of siding with corporate interests. This district voted for President Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and could be poised to swing back into Democratic hands this cycle.
