Our guest this week is Leslie Danks Burke. Leslie was the 2016 Democratic candidate for NY State Senate in the five-county 58th district. She didn’t win, but she and her campaign team were proud to garner 45% of the vote, 13 points over the district’s 32% Democratic voter registration against a three-term Republican incumbent.
Due to her campaign experience, Leslie founded the Trailblazers PAC which reconnects citizens with democracy by moving politics out of the back room and onto the front porch. Trailblazers educates candidates on building an honest donor relationship with their own voters & invests in candidates for local office who take action for clean government.
