TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. —Tompkins County Democratic Committee (TCDC) has endorsed Leslie Danks Burke in her bid for the New York State Senate’s 58th District.
“Leslie is a long-term member of the Tompkins County Democrats and the Executive Committee is proud to support her candidacy in representing portions of Tompkins County,” said TCDC in a press release. “Danks-Burke’s robust campaign supports many Democratic issues including jobs for the Southern Tier, tax reform for New York State, nurturing family farms, supporting public schools, support of the New York State Health Care Act, climate change issues, and reforming campaign finance laws.”
Danks Burke, who has been a long-term member of TCDC, picked up Sen. Schumer’s endorsement earlier this week.
In her previous attempt for the seat in 2016, the attorney and healthcare, education, and rural economy advocate lost to the incumbent and current Representative, Republican Tom O’Mara.
The general elections will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
