Leslie Danks Burke’s List Of Endorsements

October 31, 2020

From Leslie Danks Burke:

Leslie Danks Burke, candidate for State Senate in the 58th district, has received an outpouring of support throughout this election cycle. In addition to over 1,800 individual donors to her campaign, below is a list of bipartisan political leaders, community organizations, and labor unions that have endorsed her candidacy.

“It’s a true honor to have support from all of these organizations, labor unions, and people — Democratic and Republican alike. I take their endorsements both as a show of support, but as well as accountability. I will hold myself accountable in Albany to the voters of the district and will always work to ensure honest and transparent government,” said Danks Burke. “I’m ready to work hard with them and others from every corner of our great Southern Tier and Finger Lakes region to get the healthcare, public safety, road, school, and local business support we’ve been promised but that has gone missing under my opponent’s watch.”
