U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. announced Thursday her endorsement of Dean Boecher, a Democratic candidate for Queensbury at-large supervisor.

“Dean has a proven record of bringing people together and working in the best interests of the residents of Warren County,” Gillibrand said in a press release.

Boecher, a food broker and former school board member, is one of nine candidates for four at-large seats on the county Board of Supervisors.

On Wednesday, Gillibrand endorsed several Democratic candidates in Washington County races.

In Salem, she endorsed Jay Bellanca for supervisor, Dorothy Schneider and Joyce Getty for Town Council, Sarah Wohlleb for town justice, and Leslie Sullivan for town clerk.

“This team will work diligently to create an efficient and open government for the residents of Salem,” Gillibrand said in a press release.

In Putnam, she endorsed Patricia Frost for supervisor.

“Patricia has the vision, skills and expertise to move Putnam forward,” she said in the statement.

    Senator Schumer told her who to endorse. He tells her every move to make.

    I didn't read this story but let me take a guess,

    Dem Dem Dem?

    Ah yes, I see I'm right, but don't be fooled by this woman, she's never endorsed a Republican. So perdicable these politicians are. Its well known that she doesn't work well with the other side of the aisle in Washington and she's endorsing Dems all over the state.
