We in #NY21 have paid @RepStefanik about $1,300,000 to represent us so far. We provide her with great health benefits and vested her in a lifetime pension. Your money.
A minimum wage worker in 7.5 years earned about what she made in her 1st year.
1/
Median household income in #NY21 is $59,000. Household.
That means many many families of 2, 3, 4 or more are living on less than $59,000/yr. Does inflation hurt them? You bet it hurts them.
But half of all households earn more than $59,000/yr
2/
While Democrats have been fighting to increase the minimum wage to help people on the bottom of the income scale keep up with inflation or hopefully get a little bit ahead - remember Social Security is based on highest years income, starting at higher wage increases SS payments…

BREAKING: national Dems are using a "communities of interest" argument to urge their Albany counterparts to adopt an aggressive 23D-3R gerrymander that could wipe out five of NY's eight GOP seats. nyirc.gov/storage/commen… Image
Highlights of the 23D-3R plan recommended by commenter "Sean Patrick:"

- Staten Island #NY11 drawn in w/ Lower Manhattan
- New maj-min #NY02 on Long Island
- #NY27 Jacobs (R) merged w/ #NY23 Reed (R)
- #NY22 Tenney (R) put in a D-leaning seat
- #NY03 crosses Long Island Sound
More highlights of the Maloney plan submitted via public comment to NY's redistricting site:

- #NY16 Bowman (D) goes from Bronx to rural Dutchess
- #NY17 Jones (D) goes to the Catskills
- #NY19 Delgado (D) goes to Ithaca/Binghamton
- #NY25 Morelle (D) picks up Buffalo suburbs Image

Here are my views. People deserve accurate clear factual information. It's newsworthy that a former President continues to lie about his defeat in a national election. It's newsworthy officials (including Republicans) say publicly Trump's lie contributed to violence on 1/6 1/
It's also newsworthy that some Republicans have chosen to embrace and amplify Trump's lie, embellishing it with their own conspiracy theories. Factually @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik is one of those officials. Here's excellent context from @npr. 2/ npr.org/2022/01/12/107…

Thread: a lot of talk these days about EVs in cold weather. So I'm going to tweet blog about a long day of work driving in the #Adirondacks #ny21 North Country on a frigid day in my #teslamodel3. First thing I'll say: having a garage helps when it's -7f. /1 Image
This means I start with my standard range of 284 miles without spending a bunch of battery power warming the #teslamodel3. The first part of the drive is uneventful with no noticeable loss of range. 2/❄️🚗 Image
After stopping for an interview in Plattsburgh and getting the #teslamodel3 going again I've definitely lost some battery power/range. Started with 284 miles drove roughly 50 miles and this is my current range. Means I'll likely have to recharge a bit before getting home. -7f 3/ Image

Thread: The @zdhirsch @davidncpr @ncpr treatment of @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik's role trying to block the peaceful transfer of power amid the 1/6 insurrection is a must-listen. I want to highlight one part of their reporting. 1/ #ny21 northcountrypublicradio.org/news/story/451…
What makes @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik's role worthy of deep reporting is that she has a long history at Harvard, at the Foreign Policy Institute and at the National Endowment for Democracy working with organizations that defend democratic and civic institutions. 2/
@EliseStefanik @RepStefanik From Hirsch's reporting: "Given her background – for Stefanik to be a leading voice discrediting the results of a presidential election and effectively trying to block or delay the peaceful transfer of power, it’s a surprising turn." #ny21 3/

Noteworthy: @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik has now gone beyond choosing not to advocate for vaccine acceptance in her #ny21 district. She is now arguing private companies should allow anti-vaxxers to use their platforms to spread and amplify false information about the vaccines. 1/
Specifically, @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik is saying it is "censorship" for twitter to block Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from repeatedly spreading lies that vaccines cause "extremely high" numbers of deaths. 2/ nytimes.com/2022/01/02/tec…
It's unclear which doctors @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik is referring to. It would be helpful for the small group #ny21 media who are still granted access to the Congresswoman to ask whether Rep. Stefanik shares Rep. Greene's views about vaccines. 3/

Thread: For 20 years I covered the political & cultural life of a small region of rural America in northern NY, the #adirondacks and the #ny21 congressional district. If you had told me this story would have been possible, I wouldn't believe it. @ncpr 1/ northcountrypublicradio.org/news/story/449…
I covered hurricanes, fires, wars, tragic event after tragic event. In every instance there was a palpable coming together, a tone that was broadly apolitical and a deep sense that small towns must, in the final equation, work together to survive. 2/
I say the tone was apolitical but the political leadership class of #ny21 is largely Republican. In moments of crisis leaders like Betty Little, John McHugh, Janet Duprey, Teresa Sayward and many others worked closely across party lines to help communities heal. 3/

Thread: NoCo Rep. @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik today called out Democrats for silence on a local politician involved in alleged drug use. Meanwhile her social media feeds were completely silent on the death and healthcare 'gridlock' being caused by #covid19. #ny21 1/
Here's a sampling of what local media outlets looked like on this day when the Congresswoman made no mention of the pandemic. This from @poststar 2/ poststar.com/news/local/war…

NEW YORK: strategists I've spoken w/ tell me strong census numbers in NYC could help Dems purge as many as *five* of the eight GOP seats in the state.

In the hypothetical below, Dems would gerrymander the current 19D-8R map (left) into as brutal as a 23D-3R rout (right).
In the scenario above, only three Rs would be spared: Reps. Andrew Garbarino #NY02, Elise Stefanik #NY21 and Chris Jacobs #NY23.

Every Dem incumbent would get a double digit Biden seat (including Maloney #NY18 & Delgado #NY19).
A close-up view of NYC in the above scenario: Staten Island Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R)'s #NY11 would take on Red Hook, Sunset Park & parts of Park Slope and flip from Trump +11 to Biden +10.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D)'s #NY14 would absorb some GOP parts of Westchester.

NEW YORK: given what's happening elsewhere in redistricting, it's tough to imagine Dems holding onto the House without aggressively gerrymandering NY (and bypassing the state's new commission).

I basically see two likely scenarios for Dems in NY. A brief thread...
First: the maximally aggressive play would be to try to convert the current 19D-8R map to 23D-3R. The example below eliminates Reed's #NY23 and flips #NY01 Zeldin, #NY11 Malliotakis and #NY22 Tenney from Trump to Biden 10+ districts.
In this scenario, Dems' approach to #NY24 Katko is a bit of a bank shot. The goal would be to dislodge Katko from his Syracuse base enough to make him vulnerable in a primary from the right, but keep #NY24 blue enough that Dems could win it in the general.

Thread: For six+ years I covered @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik as closely as any journalist, following her through rural Upstate #adirondack towns in #ny21, watching her build political strength, visiting her in Washington DC. Here are my takeaways. 1/
In 2014 she presented herself as a moderate and her past career suggested as much - including her writings at Harvard and her work with Democrats like @SenatorShaheen northcountrypublicradio.org/news/story/249…
She also worked closely early in her career with moderates and people who've emerged as never-Trumpers like @MittRomney @SpeakerRyan @BillKristol including a stint in the Bush-Cheney White House. 3/

North Country thread #ny21: this has huge implications for the #adirondacks region. Our population is already older than the national average which means even fewer births 1/
When you combine this with our lack of appeal to immigrants the math is devastating. Demographic decline is inevitable without a profound shift 2/
Because so many of our communities and counties are already very low population the impacts could be felt very swiftly and indeed are manifested in closing schools churches groceries etc 3/

#Thread: This is personal. I announced my candidacy in April of 2019. Less than a month later, my extended family suffered a tragedy of addiction. I found myself trying to find a detox bed for our loved one. I drove 8 hours in the middle of the night to be there.⬇️
I watched the sickness, the pain. We were able to find him help— after several days, & 100s of calls.

I watched as he looked at the paperwork & the cost 4 treatment. He looked at me, terrified. He couldn’t afford it. Our family couldn’t afford it. He had insurance. He was lucky.
The same week our lives were turned upside down, my opponent @EliseStefanik, voted against a bill that would help families suffering under the weight addiction. It would have helped connect families to healthcare navigators, connect them to treatment, to save lives. ⬇️

This is the gravity of the facts @EliseStefanik @RepStefanik has yet to address in a substantive interview, laid out by presidential historian Michael Beschloss (link at end of thread). “This is the only president in American history who incited an insurrection..." #ny21 /1
Trump "incited an insurrection against Congress that could have resulted in assassinations and hostage-taking and, conceivably, the cancellation of a free presidential election and the fracturing of a democracy." #ny21 /2
"It’s very hard to think of a scenario under which someone might imagine some wonderful thing that Donald Trump did that will outshine that. He did, literally, the worst thing that an American president could ever do.” #ny21 /3

🚨 TAXIN' TEDRA COPIED & STOLE legislation that I actually PASSED for "her veterans plan" 🚨

Taxin’ Tedra is such a failed & desperate candidate that she literally steals my legislation that is now law.
The good news for North Country voters is unlike Taxin' Tedra Copycat Cobb, I actually delivered this legislative result on behalf of North Country military families. #NY21
Tedra Cobb should immediately apologize to me, military families, and all North Country voters for this outrageous plagiarism. Next time, we suggest a simple Google search of the bill that she clearly knows nothing about and just copy and pasted into her copied veterans plan.

THREAD: Today’s @poststar column by @kentingley ends with a dangerous allusion to gun violence and has no place on the pages of a serious community newspaper. This news editor is well aware of the impact of his words, and is completely unacceptable.
I unequivocally condemned violence of any kind, specifically violence against the press, at a public community event in Hudson Falls. The @poststar editor @KenTingley was in attendance but refused to publish my answer. WATCH 👇
Instead, he describes a typical campaign fundraising appeal describing Far-Left Democrat attacks on @realDonaldtrump supporters to “I wasn’t sure if she would be buying campaign ads or bullets.” @kentingley’s call to gun violence is shameful, untrue, outrageous, and dangerous.
