In early October, current District 12 Legislator, Will Burbank, endorsed Amanda over her competitor. He said:
"I will be leaving the Legislature at the end of this year and am glad that Amanda is running for this seat. She is a thoughtful, intelligent person with strong progressive values.
I know that she will do an excellent job of representing District 12."
Ithaca.com and WHCU published articles about the endorsement.
Shawna Black, Candidate for Legislature, District 11 writes this endorsement of Amanda:
"I have known Amanda since November 2016. We worked together and coordinated resources for the Women's March in Ithaca and the group that went to D.C.
We both decided to run for the legislature within weeks of each other and have collaborated on County issues and campaign information.
Amanda knows her district and is familiar with the issues they will face in the future. She is passionate about the environment and housing affordability. Amanda will be an asset to the legislature and I look forward to working with her in January 2018."
Thank you, Shawna!
I am honored to announce that I have been endorsed by Dan Klein, Vice Chair of the Tompkins County Legislature, from District 7.
"Amanda is an honest, fair person who is going into local government with an open mind and a willingness to work hard. I look forward to serving with her."
Thank you, Dan!
