Statement From Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,C,I,Ref-Canandaigua)

March 16, 2018

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter. She was a distinguished and dedicated public servant who represented the Rochester region with grace, intelligence and integrity.

From her start in local government, to her service in the New York State Assembly, to her years in Washington D.C., Congresswoman Slaughter was a role model for many and earned the universal respect of colleagues and constituents. Her unwavering commitment to the people and prosperity of our region was truly admirable.

Today, all of New York State mourns the loss of an incredible individual and courageous public servant. I extend my deepest condolences to her family and loved ones during this difficult time.”
