Elise Stefanik should be very proud of herself that the Washington establishment is behind her with dirty tricks. The attack ads against Matt Doheny are the meanest, most disgusting we have seen in any political race.
Mr. Doheny is one of us, raised in our area. He knows our problems and understands Fort Drum and its great importance to our area and to our country. Ms. Stefanik’s only claim to being from our area is that her parents have a summer home somewhere in this voting area.
The old guard politicians in Washington back her with money and a half-hearted visit to her campaign as she is one of them. They are among the many in Washington who need flushing out and sent back home for good.
Does the north country need more of the same? Of course these politicians back her as she worked for them and is one of them.
They want to continue to mingle with their own kind at the parties she hosts at her Washington townhouse. Let’s show these old established politicians that we have had enough.
We need honest people in Washington and term limits. We need jobs, not parties.
We need experience in getting businesses back on track so there will be jobs. We need to wake up and not be fooled by false claims. Vote for Mr. Doheny, who wants the best for us.
