Hawley decides not to run for Assembly Minority Leader
Written by Alex Feig on January 6, 2020
A statement from Assemblyman Steve Hawley:
“After discussions with family, friends and colleagues, I have decided not to explore a potential run to become the next Assembly Minority Leader. I sincerely appreciate all of the support and consideration I’ve received over the last few days.
For our conference and constituents, it is important that Assembly Republicans begin the new year and new legislative session as a unified force. Even in the midst of change, our resolve and commitment must remain strong as we develop solutions for our constituents and fight back a liberal agenda that threatens our great state.
I proudly support my friend Assemblyman Will Barclay as our next Assembly Minority Leader, and I look forward to working alongside him as we move New York State in the right direction.”
