TImes Union Endorses Aaron Woolf! Join Us To Greet Aaron Saturday, 3pm, Glens Falls HQ

I want to pass along this great editorial from the Times Union endorsing Aaron Woolf for Congress.  Please take time to read an editorial that places Aaron in league with Tonko and Gibson.

Aaron Woolf will be at the Democratic HQ on Ridge Street at 3pm on Saturday.   Please come down and cheer him on.

It is imperative that Democrats vote!  Row A all the way!

Thank you all for your efforts,

Lynne


In this three way race, voters will choose among Democrat Aaron Woolf, Republican Elise Stefanik and Green candidate Matt Funicello. Mr. Funicello might be a credible candidate if not for his status as a “questioner” of the official account of the 9/11 attacks. Conspiracy theory is not a foundation for effective representation.

That leaves Mr. Woolf, a filmmaker, and Ms. Stefanik, a former policy aide in the George W. Bush White House and policy director for the 2012 Republican National Convention. Of the two, we believe Mr. Woolf would be the better representative for the North Country, and the more moderating voice in Congress.

Ms. Stefanik packages herself as a candidate willing to bridge the divides, but the more specific she gets on key issues, the less compromising she seems. She talks, for example, of finding a way forward on immigration – so long as the U.S. border is secured before turning to the fate of the estimated 11 million people already here illegally. It’s that insistence that has stymied progress on this issue for years.

She also espouses an energy future relying heavily on coal, rhetorically labeled “all-of-the-above” by its backers. That’s puzzling in a district where pollution from Midwest coal plants devastated the Adirondacks for years.

Mr. Woolf favors a bipartisan compromise on immigration. He would be a progressive voice on climate policy, extending incentives to promote sustainable energy sources along with energy efficiency and the jobs that will be needed to achieve it.

We also find Mr. Woolf clearer on many issues than Ms. Stefanik, who often shows her background as a partisan talking points packager. On shoring up Social Security, for example, she says she’s open to a range of options but commits to none; Mr. Woolf favors raising the income threshold.

Mr. Woolf’s clarity and thoughtfulness on issues while avoiding dogma wins him our endorsement.
