Erie County Democratic Committee Endorses Amber Small for State Senate in 60th District

Today, the Erie County Democratic Committee endorsed Amber Small for State Senate in the 60th District, which covers parts of Buffalo, Grand Island, the City and Town of Tonawanda, Hamburg, part of Lackawanna, Evans, and Brant.   

ECDC Chairman Jeremy Zellner said “Amber Small has a proven record of working hard for the residents of the 60th district.  She has put together a strong campaign and gives the Democrats a strong voice to win in November.” 

Small commented "I would like to thank ECDC and our Democratic Party leadership for their endorsement of my campaign."  She continued, "My strong Democratic values have long been the driving force behind my efforts to improve our community.  Today’s endorsement is a tremendous step forward in our goal to better serve the residents of our district."

In the 60th Senate District, Democrats hold an almost two to one enrollment advantage over Republicans.  Small commented on this saying "This November, voters will be presented with a clear choice between someone who exemplifies our community's core values and is intent on improving the lives of our residents, and someone intent on rolling back the progress we have made with the anti-equal rights, anti-women and anti-working class agenda of the Republican Party. I plan to be a Senator who is working hard for all residents of Western New York, be they Democrat, Independent, or Republican."

Small serves as the Executive Director of the Parkside Community Association. In this role she is an advocate for 2,500 residents, working to enhance their quality of life through crime prevention, traffic calming, fair housing advocacy and more.  Amber also serves on the Board of Directors for B-Team Buffalo, and is a member of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce’s Emerging Business Leaders council.  She proudly serves as Vice Chair of WEPAC, a nonpartisan group focused on increasing female involvement in politics and government. Amber is a graduate of the University at Buffalo, and resides in North Buffalo’s Parkside neighborhood with her family.   New York's Sixtieth Senate District is located wholly in Erie County and includes the communities of Tonawanda, City of Tonawanda, Kenmore, Grand Island, Orchard Park, Evans, Brant, and the City of Buffalo.
