'Big Tent' at Stefanik open house
Warren County Democratic Chairwoman Lynne Boecher and Glens Falls Democratic Chairman Roy Thomas were among those who stopped to greet U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, on Saturday at an open house at the congresswoman’s Glens Falls office.
“I 100 percent wish her well. I think we have to work in concert,” said Boecher.
Former Washington County Republican Chairman Mike Bittel said he was glad that Democrats attended the open house.
“We have a big tent,” he said.
Diane Collins, co-organizer of Tri-County Transition Initiative, also attended to provide Stefanik with information about global warming.
“I left a memo,” Collins said.
Collins said she invited Stefanik to attend Climate Reality Forum, a day-long program about climate change, March 21 at SUNY Adirondack.
“I hope she’ll attend or send a representative,” Collins said.
