Cursive not as important as proponents say

As residents of the Front Yard of America, we know the importance of a strong relationship with Canada.

Security, trade and tourism centered on the border are critical for our communities.

Yet Tedra Cobb has made no definitive statements on how she would continue to improve our relationship with Canadians, work to improve access to tourists and snowbirds or pass the United States Mexico Canada Agreement.

We’re lucky to have a representative in Congress who really understands this and acts on it.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik has gone above and beyond in helping manage the relationship with Canada and to improve the situation at the border.

She’s worked with President Donald Trump to address staffing and security issues, to rewrite trade agreements and secure funds to promote a free flow of goods, visitors and ideas while always putting America first.

Tedra Cobb has no substantive policies on the most important issues for our region.

We cannot afford to wait to learn her beliefs on the matter. We must know right now.

We can’t risk sending Tedra Cobb to Congress.

She has no experience working with top Canadian officials, no foreign policy experience and has done little to show us her ideas on how to address issues like security and trade.

We need Elise Stefanik to continue to represent us.

We need to vote for her in the election next November.

Good letter!! Disregard the hateful comments and points were all well taken.

Trump is so respectful of others I can see why you would dismiss clear facts that indicate our president is a pathological liar who is about to start a war to help himself get re-elected. Remember when he started his campaign with the racist lie that Obama was born in Kenya?

She's a TRAITOR to our Country & should be treated as such.

It is not easy to turn America into an international laughingstock, but Elise and President Trump are making it happen. Did you know that on Canadian TV they edited out the scene in Home Alone 2 with Trump in it? President Trump is the perfect kind of bloated man baby to address the “Home Alone on Canadian TV’ issue. Did you know we have a record federal budget deficit and the leaders of other countries laugh at us for electing a completely ignorant buffoon as president?

Exactly. And add to that the sights and sounds of Stefanik on nationwide TV during the House Intel Committee hearings, kvetching in lock-step with Jordan and Nunes about perceived (invented?) procedural shortcomings.
