“On behalf of the Assembly Minority Conference, I want to express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Assemblyman David Gantt on the news of his passing. David served the people of Rochester with unique determination and loyalty and touched countless lives during a lifetime of public service, which included nearly 40 years in the state Assembly.

His death will be felt greatly by his colleagues in the Legislature and across New York state, but especially in his 137th Assembly District. I encourage everyone to keep his loved ones in their thoughts and prayers during this tragic time.”
