The Ly Kesse Campaign for Allegany County Legislature

CANASERAGA — The Allegany County Democratic Committee formally endorsed the candidacy of Ly Kesse July 14th in her 2021 run for a District V seat on the Allegany County Legislature. District V includes the towns of Alfred, Allen, Almond, Birdsall, Burns, Grove and West Almond, and the villages of Alfred, Almond and Canaseraga.

Ms. Kesse, a 30-year resident of Allegany County, has lived and raised a family here while working in the fields of journalism and accounting. For fifteen of those years, she has volunteered for the A. E. Crandall Hook & Ladder Company variously as Vice President,Treasurer, grant writer, ambulance driver, and spare hands. As a grant writer, she brought into four Allegany County fire departments half a million dollars in funding: for PPE and mostly broad-band radio. She is running for County Legislature to represent the minority party.

“As a member of our committee since 2018,” writes ACDC Chair, Michael McCormick, “we have witnessed firsthand Ly’s commitment to uphold the principles and values of the Democratic Party. It is with confidence and pride that the Allegany County Democratic Committee endorses your campaign.”

Ms. Kesse has a Bachelor’s degree in English from Rutgers University and an MBA in Accounting from SUNY’s University at Buffalo. She has served in professional roles at Alfred University and regional CPA firms, as well as serving as a Staff Accountant at the Astor Home for Children in Rhinebeck, NY.

Ms. Kesse is running for County Legislature to represent the minority party in Allegany County. As an elected Legislator, she will devote her attention to improving broadband Internet service in the county, making it available to every home, student, and business in Allegany County, and increasing funding for and expansion of public transportation options. Improving the local infrastructure of the internet and transportation would help improve both the business and employment prospects in Allegany County.
