Here is Mayor Graham's endorsement of Dede Scozzafava.
The North Country has an opportunity to elect a decent,independent woman to the Congress of the United States in DeidreScozzafava.
Like many of my constituents in Watertown, I have knownAssemblywoman Scozzafava for years and found her to be a conscientiousand dedicated advocate for our region and in particular for Fort Drum,which means so much to Jefferson County.
DeDe Scozzafava is a former mayor from the Village of Gouverneurwho understands life in the small towns and rural stretches that arethe 23rd Congressional District.
DeDe knows the North Country....knows its people....and has theblend of fiscal conservatism and social tolerance that is shared by thepeople of this district.
She will be an able and exemplary representative of the peopleof the 23rd, and I heartily support her candidacy for the seat held byRep. John McHugh, whom I have also had the privilege of supporting overthe years.
Jeffrey E. Graham
Mayor, City of Watertown (small but still the biggest city in the 23rd !)
