Niskayuna Town Board Member Julie McDonnell said the endorsement was "a great honor" for McGraw.
"She is a community activist, and she has served on many boards and committees," said McDonnell. "She's a wonderful candidate for town board."
McDonnell has two more years to her term and is looking to help McGraw in her campaign for office.
"I think that Supervisor Joe Landry has done a great job, and I'm confident the Democratic slate will win," said McDonnell.
Landry is also seeking reelection this year, and will be sharing the ticket with McDonnell.
"We are very pleased for her being chosen as a recipient for this award. It is a reflection of everything she has done in the community, and she would be a great attribute for the Niskayuna Town Board," said Landry. "We're working as a team, and we hope that she is elected in November."
The ERLC endorsement recipients were honored at the ERLC's fall luncheon in New York City Monday, Oct. 5, with special guests that include Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
