– “She is Always Willing and Able to Pick Up the Phone and Assist Us Wherever it is Needed and is Very Much in Touch With All the Issues Affecting Us” –

Glens Falls: The Stefanik campaign today announced the endorsement of 117 leaders in Jefferson County. The endorsements include Republican, Democrat and Independent elected and appointed officials and every town in Jefferson County.

“It’s essential that we have good, solid working relationships at all levels of our government. Congresswoman Stefanik understands this, said Scott Gray, Chairman of the Jefferson County Board of Legislators. “She is always willing and able to pick up the phone and assist us wherever it is needed, whether it’s on economic development, our local airports, or Fort Drum, she is always there to help. She is very much in touch with all the issues affecting us and we have a great working relationship that has allowed both of us to deliver beneficial results for Jefferson County. That is why I am proud to endorse Elise for re-election.”

“I believe and trust in her to do the job we elected her to do,” said James Eves, Village Mayor, Village of Dexter. “Especially, fighting for Fort Drum.”

“It’s nice to finally have a politician that keeps true to her word,” said Robert “Bobby” Ferris, County Leg. District 11. “Thank you, Elise, for doing a great job.”

“Elise is always willing to listen to her constituents concerns, and represents us effectively in Washington,” said Jen Dindle-Neff, Town Councilwoman, Town of LeRay.

“As a local elected official and a college student, I am proud to endorse Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election,” said Logan Eddy, Councilman, Town of Rutland. “Elise Stefanik is a strong advocate for our community, whether she is meeting with local dairy farmers or resolving issues facing Fort Drum, she is always at the forefront and ready to listen to our concerns. In addition to her continued communication, Elise’s efforts to ensure access to quality and affordable higher education has not gone unnoticed in the North Country, which is why I hope you will join me in voting to re-elect Elise Stefanik as our Congresswoman.”

“Congresswoman Stefanik has continued to be a tireless advocate for the North Country and our residents,” William Kalin III, Town Clerk, Town of Rutland. “As a combat veteran, I applaud Elise for her continued support for veterans and their families across the district, ensuring they receive the services they are entitled to for their courageous service to their country.”

“I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of so many leaders across Jefferson County,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “From my first day in Congress, I’ve worked on a bipartisan basis with these leaders to deliver real results for families and small businesses across the County.

I thank each and every one of these leaders, as well as our tremendous grassroots network of volunteers and supporters across Jefferson County and across the North Country as we work to earn every vote and win in November.”
