TOMPKINS COUNTY, NY – The New York State Young Democrats have endorsed Leslie Danks Burke for State Senate in the 58th District. “I am grateful to the New York State Young Dems and the Rural Caucus for their endorsement and I look forward to working with them on the campaign,” said Danks Burke. “In the current political climate it’s easy to understand why young voters become disengaged. I believe we need to make real changes in our state legislature, including passing comprehensive ethics reform, to prove to the next generation that we can in fact create real, lasting and positive change through political action.”
“We’re proud to endorse Leslie Danks Burke for State Senate. Having known her for several years, I know that as State Senator, Leslie will fight to ensure that young people and young entrepreneurs will have a future in the Southern Tier, to stop the brain drain caused by Republican inaction. She’ll fight for jobs for young people so that we don’t have to leave the Southern Tier and stop the breakup of families across our Finger Lakes,” said Paolo Cremidis, Rural Caucus Chair of NYSYD.
