U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik has done an amazing job at representing our diverse district.

She votes in a manner that best serves the people of her district.

Elise truly is an independent voice and one of the most bipartisan members of Congress.

The congresswoman reaches across the aisle to get results; she has stood with the president on areas of agreement and has been vocal when she disagrees with the president.

As a young, New York Republican, I share many of her positions.

The congresswoman has advocated for lower taxes, a more welcoming environment for businesses and farmers, the defense of our Second Amendment and so much more.

It is essential that we, the supporters of Elise even if we disagree with her on occasion, continue to support her and have conversations with those who do not support her. Supporting Elise means supporting results, supporting jobs and bipartisanship. Thank you, Congresswoman!
