Today we were able to speak with Leslie Danks Burke.

She is a public advocate and the Founder and President of TRAILBLAZERS PAC : a political action committee dedicated to finding and supporting candidates for local political office beyond typical party ideology and structure.

Based in Horseheads, NY, Leslie’s goal is to improve the quality of candidates and the political discourse in this country, one municipality at a time.

Their mission statement states: “Trailblazers PAC reconnects citizens with democracy by moving politics out of the back room and onto the front porch. We educate candidates on building an honest donor relationship with their own voters. We invest in candidates for local office who take action for clean government.”

She is here to help us make sense of the current political environment, its impact on the current political apparatus, and the direction of grass root campaigns going forward.
