Assemblyman Phil Palmesano was pleased to meet with his predecessor, Jim Bacalles, during Bacalles recent visit to Albany.
It was a great privilege for me to welcome former Assemblyman Jim Bacalles back to the Assembly, said Palmesano.
Palmesano noted that he and Bacalles have maintained an excellent relationship over the years.
Not only was Jim my predecessor, but he is also my mentor and friend. I had the honor of working for Jim from 1995 to 2004, and during that time, I gained a wealth of knowledge from him, said Palmesano. . Jim was a dedicated servant to the people of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions, and I want to personally thank him for his years of service to our area.
