    Statement from Senator Joseph Griffo

    State Sen. Joseph Griffo, R-I-C-Rome, released the following statement today
    following his appointment as Acting Minority Leader of the New York State
    Senate:

    “I respect Minority Leader Flanagan’s decision to seek treatment for alcohol
    dependency and join with my colleagues in praying for his recovery.  Leader
    Flanagan has always been a selfless leader, putting his professional
    responsibilities, obligations and duties above his own needs and I applaud his
    courage in confronting this disease. It is now important for him to take the time
    to concentrate on his own well being and our conference supports him
    completely in that effort.

    In Minority Leader Flanagan’s absence, I am honored to accept the
    responsibility of leading the state Senate’s Republican Conference on an
    interim basis. Together, with the exceptional group of talented and committed
    Senators and staff, we will stay unified in crafting, presenting and advocating
    our vision for moving our great state forward.”
