N.Y. (WETM) — Leslie Danks Burke kicked off her New York State Senate campaign on Tuesday.

The democrat is running to represent New York’s 58th State Senate District.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Danks Burke visited seven cities and villages across the district on a “Whistlestop Tour:”

  • Penn Yan
  • Watkins Glen
  • Hornell
  • Bath
  • Corning
  • Elmira
  • Ithaca

At each stop, Danks Burke met with voters and community leaders.

“Today is about visiting seven towns all across that district and making sure that everyone understands that this is a campaign about all of us. This is not about any one place or one person… This is a campaign that is unifying the whole district.”
