GLENS FALLS, NY – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that she has received the endorsements of 1,050 local elected officials across New York’s 21st Congressional District, which includes 943 Republicans, 15 Conservatives, 60 Democrats, and 32 Independents in all 15 counties. This is the highest number of local elected endorsements ever in Team Elise history. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik stated:

“I am extremely honored and humbled to have earned the endorsement of over 1,000 local elected Upstate New York and North Country officials– a new record! This record-breaking coalition of Team Elise supporters includes Democrats, Independents, Conservatives, and Republicans across our community. From Massena to Middleburgh, and the town of Gouverneur to Plattsburgh, I’m grateful to have enthusiastic support from all corners of NY-21,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. “While this includes elected officials in counties I have represented for the past eight years and delivered real results for, I’m also proud that this includes elected officials from new counties that I look forward to fighting for in the next Congress. Every person on this list understands my record of results and knows I will work tirelessly to bring the concerns of Upstate New York and the North Country to the highest levels of government. I’m grateful to count on each of these elected officials as our team works hard in the coming days to earn another historic re-election victory and deliver a Red Wave to Save New York.”

“This November, I will be proudly casting my vote for Rensselaer County’s next Congresswoman, Elise Stefanik,” said Steven F. McLaughlin, Rensselaer County Executive. “Elise has been delivering real results for NY-21 for years and I am happy that Rensselaer County will have a fighter like her as our new representative in Congress. She has consistently defended Upstate New York and North Country from Far Left radical Democrats’ assaults on our rights and values. I look forward to working hard over the coming days to ensure that she is Rensselaer County’s representative in the next Congress.”

“I am proud to once again endorse Congresswoman Stefanik as she is the best choice for voters in Lewis County and across the North Country,” said Larry Dolhoff (R), Chairman of the County Board of Legislators. “Elise has a track record of delivering results on the local issues that matter to us; she has brought the concerns of Lewis County and the North Country to the highest level of government. Most importantly, Elise understands how vital agriculture is for our community and district and has fiercely advocated for this industry in Congress. We need to keep Elise in office because she fights for us when no one else will, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse her for re-election this year.”

“I am endorsing Congresswoman Stefanik for another term because she has remained constantly accessible and a strong voice for Washington County in Congress,” said Denis Langlois (I), the Village Mayor of Fort Ann. “Elise introduced legislation to enhance the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area to include all of Washington County, which would increase tourism and be a boon to our local economy. We can always count on Elise to listen, stand up, and deliver, and I’m proud to give her my full endorsement.”

“I will be voting for Congresswoman Elise Stefanik this November,” said Paul Strenn, Town Supervisor Decatur (I). “Elise has been delivering real results for her constituents for years and has been a fighter in Congress on behalf of family farmers. Otsego County would be lucky to have such a strong representative in Congress and that is why I ask you to join me in supporting Elise for Congress this November.”

“I am endorsing Congresswoman Stefanik because she truly cares about Clinton County and the North Country,” Howard Aubin, Black Brook Town Council Member (D). “Throughout the devastating flooding earlier this year, Elise was in constant contact with state and local officials. Elise’s compassion for our community and work to help those impacted by the flooding is one of the many reasons she has my full support this November.”

“I am proud to endorse Congresswoman Elise Stefanik in her re-election this November,” said Shawn Bowerman, Montgomery County Treasurer (D). “Congresswoman Stefanik has fought tirelessly during her tenure to deliver real results for Upstate New York and the North Country, and I look forward to what she will bring to Montgomery County. I have seen Congresswoman Stefanik in action. Because of Elise’s relentless advocacy, the Northern Border Regional Commission implemented a program that helped address NY-21’s rural doctor shortage. It is because of Elise’s ability to deliver real results like this that she has my full support this November, and I look forward to working tirelessly to help her win.”
