Rachel May, candidate for the State Senate’s 53rd district, received the endorsement of the Town of Kirkland Democratic Committee on May 2.

“I am thrilled to have the support of the Kirkland Democrats,” said May. “Getting to know and work with members of the committee here over the past few months has been a pleasure. The committee is enthusiastic about so many issues, from expanding rural broadband, increasing renewable energy production and improving our infrastructure, to guaranteeing health care for all New Yorkers.”

She said, “Additionally, they are passionate and effective advocates for the issues they care about. I’m excited to work with them through the course of this campaign.”

The Kirkland Commmittee is the largest Democratic committee in the portion of Oneida County that lies within the 53rd State Senate district. The Oneida County Democratic Committee is expected to make a decision on an endorsement in the race later in the month.
