Speaker Heastie Statement on the Passing of Former Assemblymember William Magee

It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of former Assemblymember William “Bill” Magee. Bill was born and raised in Central New York’s farming communities, and for 28 years in the Assembly, he was a voice and an advocate for his constituents. Throughout his tenure in the People’s House, and while serving as chair of the Assembly Committee on Agriculture, he was a champion for farmers and our state’s agricultural industries.

I know I speak on behalf of all of our friends and colleagues in the Assembly in sending my deepest condolences to Bill’s family and friends, especially during this holiday season.
