The Town of Ithaca Democratic Committee is thrilled to support one of our longtime members, Leslie Danks Burke, in her run for State Senate (District 58). Leslie has been an innovative, dependable and hard-working member of our committee. We know that Leslie thinks deeply about important issues, and we can rely on her to work well with others and do the hard work to lift up our local community. She will bring our voices to the table in Albany, fight hard to bring resources to our community, and advocate for common-sense progressive solutions to the many policy challenges we face including healthcare, the environment, and our economic recovery.

The 58th senate district covers the Town and City of Ithaca, Newfield, Enfield and Ulysses in Tompkins County in addition to all of Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates Counties.  Whether you live inside the district or not, we encourage you to support Leslie; you can join us in attending one of the campaign’s regularly scheduled phone banks, or by writing postcards to voters. Sign up to help out or donate to Leslie’s campaign at http://www.leslieforsenate.com.
