Assemblyman Brian Kolb has again been selected to head the Assembly Republican conference, the caucus announced today.
“It is an honor — and truly humbling — to again receive the support and trust of my colleagues to continue serving as Leader,” he said in a statement. “I truly believe that our Conference has some of the hardest working, most dedicated, caring and effective public servants not only in New York, but also in the entire country.”
Assembly Republicans face a difficult task in terms of wielding influence in the Legislature’s lowest chamber. Democrats picked up five seats on Election Day and now hold at least 105 seats in the 150-seat chamber. (One district on Long Island will be decided by absentee ballots, but the Republican incumbent has a slim lead.)
Kolb has been in the Assembly since 2000.
