Tedra L. Cobb

NY-21 (D)
Current office holder: Elise Stefanik (R)
Tedra served on the Saint Lawrence County Legislature for eight years. She decided to run for Congress after feeling that the 21st District's interests were not placed above party politics. An entreprenuer and a resident of Canton for over 30 years, she started a community health agency that provides medical care to those who cannot afford health insurance, as well as a business to help teams communicate and collaborate.
How does Tedra align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Tedra advocates for high-quality public education. She will fight to protect progams that brought educational equality, such as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESSA), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Tedra believes that the heart of the immigration issue is a human one, and thus supports immigration policies that acknowledge immigrants as community members, like basic labor rights.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Tedra advocates for insurance for all, improved Medicaid reimbursement, and increased resources to combat the opioid epidemic. She will protect the environment by defending the EPA and supporting the development of a green energy economy.
