Ithaca mayor endorses Danks Burkes in NYS Senate race

The City of Ithaca’s Acting Mayor Laura Lewis has thrown her support behind Democrat Leslie Danks Burke for New York State Senate District 53.

Lewis said she was “thrilled” to endorse Danks Burke, according to Ithaca Voice. Lewis’ predecessor Svante Myrick previously endorsed Danks Burke’s opponent Lea Webb. Danks Burke and Webb are the only two Democrats vying for the party’s nomination after Dr. Ammitai Worob dropped out of the race in March.


Also this week, Danks Burke received endorsements from Village of Cayuga Heights Mayor Linda Woodard, former Town of Newfield Supervisor Richard Driscoll, former Ithaca Town Board member Pat Leary, and former candidate for Groton Town Board Mark Robinson.
