JEFFERSON COUNTY—Today, 50 Jefferson County elected officials, including 45 Republicans, 2 Independents, and 3 Democrats endorsed Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election to Congress. This includes one or more local elected officials from every town in Jefferson County in the new NY-21.

“I am honored to endorse Congresswoman Stefanik for re-election. Elise understands how critical it is to support Fort Drum, and she has delivered millions in federal funding to Fort Drum in this last Congress alone to fund critical projects and support our service members and their families,” James A. Nabywaniec, District 8, County Legislator (R). “Elise’s continued support for Fort Drum is one of many reasons I will work hard from now until Election Day to ensure she remains our representative. The North Country needs to keep Fort Drum’s chief advocate in Congress.”  

“I will be supporting Congresswoman Stefanik this November because she has remained an accessible leader who cares about our local community. I know that we can rely on her to be a voice for our Jefferson County, because she always has been.” Christopher W Strough, Alexandria Bay Village Trustee (I). “I’m proud to give Elise my full support this November.” 

“I am extremely grateful to have once again earned strong support from local elected leaders in Jefferson County,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Jefferson County families know that I have a proven track record of delivering results for them in Congress, including our brave men and women serving at Fort Drum. As Fort Drum’s chief advocate, I will continue to be a voice for our service members and all of our families in Jefferson County at the highest levels of our federal government.”
