Statement from Assemblyman Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-Glenville) on Senator Hugh Farley’s Announcement

“Senator Hugh Farley is not just my Senator but he’s my friend and he has been a good friend to the residents of the 49th State Senate District.  He is truly an icon in the Capital Region who has served his constituents and the people of New York State with great honor and dignity.” 


“As the father of Hospice, Senator Farley has helped scores of New York families receive compassionate end of life care for their loved ones. In the Senate, he is affectionately known as ‘Mr. Libraries’ for being a leading advocate for supporting funding for libraries and ensuring that residents have access to a world of information to enrich their lives and he has been a champion of economic development efforts in his district.”


“It’s been an honor over the years to work with Senator Farley on several efforts including getting ‘Buster’s Law’ passed to protect our companion animals and implementing ‘Charlotte’s Law’ to keep serial drunk and dangerous drivers off our roads.”


“I congratulate Senator Farley for his outstanding service and send all my prayers for better health to his beloved wife Sharon and send my best wishes to their family.”


“I will be discussing my plans for the 49th Senate District soon but today is about recognizing the good work and service of Senator Farley.”
