Sarah Burger has resigned from the chair of the Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee. Significantly, she also resigned from the Committee. Her father, Ralph Burger, also resigned from the Committee.
I was unable to reach her to find out why she resigned.
In an email sent to Saratoga County Democratic Chair Todd Kerner and to the members of the city Committee she wrote that:
“There were many reasons including health concerns. The time has come for me to step down as chair and from the committee effective immediately.”
It is unusual for a city chair to resign heading into the local election season. Her email indicated that she planned to continue her role on the Executive Committee of the New York State Democratic Committee.
Saratoga County Democratic Chair Todd Kerner made the following statement about Ms. Burger: “Sarah devoted a lot of time and energy to the City Democratic Committee and to getting Democrats elected. We thank her for all her efforts and wish her the best.”
