Here’s the story of a person who became the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Growing up, Elise Stefanik learned the value of hard work and perseverance by observing and later working in her parents’ upstate New York plywood shop. In between, she attended Harvard University and became the first in her family to graduate from college.
Since taking office to represent New York’s 21st District in 2015, Elise has been an outspoken advocate for small businesses, and has worked to peel away unwieldy taxes and regulations that choke job creators and prevent economic growth. She has also been unwavering in her support of strong national security, securing our borders, and protecting the men and women in uniform who keep our country safe. The face of the next wave of American leaders, Elise also chairs the House Republican Policy Committee’s Millennial Task Force, empowering all Americans by encouraging college choice, affordability, and completion.
Elise represents the very best of her generation: smart, hardworking, and enthusiastic about helping Americans like her break down barriers and succeed beyond anyone’s expectations.
She is running for reelection in New York’s 21st Congressional District.
