Letter to the Editor: Cohen Will Fight Status Quo

Ashley Ward of New Rochelle said Republican Bob Cohen the state Senate candidate she prefers to send to Albany.

I met Bob Cohen, State Senate candidate, a few times during his campaign and greatly appreciate that he is a refreshing change from the usual candidates. All too often, we have to choose between status quo politicians, but this is not the case with Bob. Conversely, Bob’s opponent has been in office for 25 years-my entire life-even though this career politician once favored term limits. This impresses me. I want someone to represent me who has had a real job.

Bob Cohen is exactly what we need in the State Senate. He has spent his career in the private sector, truly understands the challenges facing our businesses and families and wants to take his wisdom to Albany to push for bold change and reform. It is clear that Bob genuinely will fight to save New York State. He realizes how high taxes are driving people, especially my generation, out of New York. I've grown up in Westchester; every day I hear people say that the cost of living is too high and they may have to leave. The cause: NY has the highest taxes in country. Thankfully, Bob is ready to fight for tax relief and spending reductions.

It may be hard for Bob Cohen to fight the status quo in Albany, but on Election Day I will certainly be casting my vote for Bob and give him a chance to save my home and state.
