TO THE EDITOR: As an American, one of the most frustrating things I have seen pop up is the growing anger and hatred in American politics.
Both parties are constantly talking about how the other is destroying the U.S. As a country, it seems we are all forgetting that we all care about the same issues. Sure, we may disagree about how to resolve these issues, but at the end of the day, we just have two different perspectives. And that does not deserve hatred.
If you agree with me, then you are probably pretty happy to have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik representing us, as she has consistently resisted the toxicity in today’s politics.
Unlike many representatives in our government, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik regularly crosses the aisle to work with Democrats to create common-sense legislature. She eagerly listens to what they want and tries to reach a solution that both parties and the country can be happy with.
Elise knows good government does not come from a refusal to compromise. Solutions cannot be reached unless both parties work together, something our officials need to learn. It is Elise that represents the independent and open-minded spirit the North Country possesses.
Despite the anger we are seeing in today’s political landscape, there is still hope. Many are becoming sick of the conflict and have begun embracing officials who support bipartisanship. Elise Stefanik is one such representative, working with anyone she believes can help improve Americans’ lives. We should all be thankful for her hard work and show our appreciation for it.
