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.
