Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, has been endorsed by over 100 elected officials from St. Lawrence County.

In a news release sent on Thursday morning, Ms. Stefanik announced that 106 local elected officials from around St. Lawrence County, including Republicans, Democrats and independents, have voiced their support for her reelection campaign for the NY-21 House seat. At least one elected official from every town in the county endorsed the congresswoman.

The endorsements come from all levels of county and local government, including seven of St. Lawrence County’s 15 legislators, town supervisors from 13 towns, three city or village mayors, and various town council members and highway superintendents. A majority of the endorsements come from Republicans.

“I am honored to with these St. Lawrence County leaders on so many bipartisan results for the county, and I’m honored to earn each of these endorsements for my re-election campaign,” Ms. Stefanik wrote.

"In a news release sent on Thursday morning, Ms. Stefanik announced that 106 local elected officials from around St. Lawrence County, including Republicans, Democrats and independents, have voiced their support for her reelection campaign for the NY-21 House seat. "

Can't any of those endorsers issue press releases themselves? Do they have names? Why are they keeping their "support" a secret? Why not an open letter to the WDT with names, titles, locations, party affiliations? Is this Tulsa Tailgunner BS?

Will you reveal just thirty-two (pick one from each town) Representative Stefanik?

Will you let the voters see who is willing to be associated with you in public?

Your constituents are waiting, Elise....

I'd like to see a list of these endorsers. Seems a pretty random number and why aren't these individuals openly expressing their support? This is the real fake news. If not, prove it.

Thanks for all the effort it takes to just print Ms. Stefanik's press releases. Please stop acting like this is reporting. As if any Republican elected official would be allowed to say otherwise. There are 32 towns in the county plus the city of Ogdensburg. Do the math - that is about 3 people per town. Impressive!

Exactly.

Nest they will print some paean to "responsible journalism."

Government officials from welfare-dependent dying towns in our region endorsed Stefanik? Wow, how meaningful.

Potsdam, Canton, and Plattsburgh are the best places to live in her district, all run by Democrats. Funny that the dump towns where people collect welfare and smoke meth all day are run by Republicans. Surely a coincidence! How’s MAGA working out for Ogdensburg? You had 5 meth fires in one month ina tiny town. The Policital opinion of a North Country Republican is worth as much as Donald Trump’s word.

See how the “best places” are when the colleges

remain closed this fall. They are the only industry that keeps those “real places to live” alive. As I’ve said repeatedly, I know it’s very difficult being a leftist and living in deep red NY-21.

Nice_Commenter

You need a special level of delusion to think the Republican areas are better than the Democratic ones.

The only “industry” in the Republican areas is collecting welfare and smoking meth. Considering your attempts to pretend you are educated I am guessing you are active in industry #2.

It's going to take a while before I believe any stories about Russia coming from the "intelligence" community or you.

Another hilarious comment!

Yup folks, this is your golden opportunity to align yourself with fake "Holmes" who has made clear that he/she does not even live in NYS.

Fake “Holmes” regularly pronounces NY to be a +state of disgrace” and, like NNY360, makes it a point to roundly criticize Cuomo at every opportunity.

Fake “Holmes” is a big Trump fan and Stefanik supporter.

If you are someone to whom facts do not matter, fake “Homes” will absolutely delight you.

This needs to include some close scrutiny of NNY360 as well -- which prints what appears to be every press release and opinion from Stefanik, no matter how ill-informed, stupid, or just false.

Take Stefanik's rant over Albany's not supporting opening of summer camps for kids, for example.

( https://www.nny360.com/top_stories/stefanik-cuomo-spar-over-summer-camps-federal-funds/article_a6936064-c433-5ceb-9284-c5da160b3643.html )

Missouri summer camp closes after 82 kids, staffers infected with coronavirus: reports https://www.foxnews.com/us/missouri-summer-camp-closes-after-82-kids-staffers-infected-with-coronavirus-reports

So what do we get from NNY360? More concern about how "heavy handed" Cuomo is, and their editorial professional epidemiological opinions on how important it is to "re-open" as soon as possible.

This is so true. I want to support local journalism, but it's frustrating to live in what increasingly seems to be a responsible journalism desert.

Holmes -- the real one

That is a kind way to put it, minder.
