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.
