I proudly stand with Congresswoman Elise Stefanik because I recognize the legislation that she delivers to our district. Just this past week Congresswoman Stefanik was focusing on how to better NY-21 with thoughtful legislation like the following: the TICK (Ticks: Identify, Control, Knockout) Act resulting in a recent CDC report on lyme disease, prioritizing technology to counter China, and substance abuse and mental health services.

Unfortunately, this work has received little attention in the media, and I wanted to highlight her efforts for friends who ignore what Elise is successfully working on. Let’s take for example her most recent win for NY-21: Awarding $4 million in funding for mental health and substance abuse in our district.

Providing funding for rehabilitation centers and programs for our communities is crucial during this pandemic, as many struggle to cope with this pandemic and the crazy changes we are dealing with day in and day out.

Thank you for your support, Elise! Keep fighting strong for the North Country!
