Assemblyman Brian Kolb of Canandaigua has been unanimously re-elected as the GOP minority Leader for the New York State Legislature. Leader Kolb was elected to the Assembly in 2000, and was first elected as Leader of the Minority Conference in 2009.

In a statement released by Kolb's office on Tuesday, the GOP minority leader says,

"It is an honor to be re-elected by my colleagues as Leader of the Assembly Minority Conference. I am proud to have the support and confidence of my colleagues. Their faith and confidence in me is truly humbling. The Assembly Minority Conference will continue to fight for ideas and policies that will ease the financial burdens on hardworking families; create good jobs and stimulate the economy; and restore faith in government by advancing stronger, more comprehensive ethics reforms."

The Assembly will reconvene again in January 2017. He is the longest tenured GOP minority leader in the NY State Legislature.
