It seems to me that our society has begun to cave to the woke agenda of the Democrats that represent us. Just recently, Kathy Hochul, a.k.a Cuomo 2.0 on steroids, has taken established mascots out of schools and started a war on gas stoves. We need leaders who will fight back against these far-left wish lists. Here in Upstate New York, we are proud of our history and our traditions, and we rely on gas and oil to heat our homes and cook our food. Kathy Hochul has started an outright attack on our community as we know it. Think that we are at a point in history where we can no longer just stand around; we need to speak up. Here in Herkimer County, we have great representatives like Senator Mark Walczyk, Assemblyman Robert Smullen, and, most notably, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Having leaders who fight for us as they do in the swamps of Albany and Washington is the only hope to saving not only our great state but our country.
