Then Candidate Elise Stefanik in OgdensburgThe fellow who backed the Green candidate last year, is seeing red when it comes to Rep. Elise Stefanik's bid for a second term. The lefty editor of the Glens Falls Post Star came out of an E-board meeting with guns blazing.
Ken Tingley argues the MOC for NNY hasn't done enough to correct a flawed foreign policy and that she hasn't done enough to halt sexual assaults in the military.
Ken, the job is "representitive", not savior.
Most coverage of Ms. Stefanik's first year has been positive, citing hard work and attention to local issues.
Mr. Tingley dismissed her efforts on Fort Drum as "cheerleading".
I like the Post Star's political coverage and in Maury they actually have someone with political cred covering the topic.
Frankly the job of editors is not to provide succor to the comfortable, but it seems Mr. Tingley is one voter not on the Stefanik list of high propensity supporters.
Still, you have to listen to all, and that's why we linked to his column, even though I differ on the overall assessment of her first year, which I thought exemplary.
