Hawley Gives Out New York State Flags To Assembly Colleagues

July 8, 2010

On July 1, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-I-C - Batavia) closed out the 2010-2011 Legislative Session by giving New York State flags to his colleagues in the Assembly.

Earlier in the week, Elba Town Supervisor Lucine Kauffman, and her husband, Bill, took a tour of the State Capitol arranged by Assemblyman Hawley. Upon reaching the Assembly Chamber, Supervisor Kaufmann and Bill were surprised to find that, in addition to the American flag, many of the membersí desks included flags of other countries and social causes while there was not one New York State flag.

With that in mind, Assemblyman Hawley purchased New York State Flags for each of his Assembly Minority colleagues, and several of his colleagues in the Majority, to go with their American flags as a reminder that, although this year was a banner year for Albany dysfunction and fiscal mismanagement, the Legislature still should show pride in our home - New York State!
