Minerva The Minerva Supervisor and chair of the Essex County Democratic Committee will be headed to the national convention in September.
Sue Montgomery Corey said that she had been picked as a member of the New York State delegation as a member of the platform committee, which will travel to the National Democratic Party Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Sept. 3 through Sept. 6.
"I was really shocked when I found out about this," Corey said. "The state committee recommended me to go to the national convention and I guess the big guys agreed."
Corey said that the group would leave the Sunday before the convention, a time for the party to come together and set policy along with rallying behind President Barrack Obama, who is seeking a second term in the office.
Corey said that she was excited for the trip.
"This is going to be a really fun experience," she said. "I am sure that I am going to learn a lot."
Corey also said that Mark Whitney of Schroon Lake would be attending the conference as a delegate.
