    Press Release from Sen. Griffo's Office:

    Griffo Statement on Minority Leader Position

    New York State Senate Deputy Minority Leader Joseph Griffo, R-I-C-Rome,
    released the following statement today regarding the New York State Senate’s
    Minority Leader position:

    “I am grateful for those who have approached and encouraged me to consider
    the Minority Leader position. I understand the importance of the role and believe
    that I have the skill set necessary and have demonstrated the abilities needed to
    lead the Senate’s Republican Conference. However, after contemplation and
    reflection, along with family obligations, I have decided that I shall not seek nor
    accept this leadership position. It has been a privilege, honor and pleasure to
    serve as Deputy Minority Leader, and I am appreciative of the Conference for
    having the confidence in me to serve in this role. I am looking forward to
    continuing to serve my Conference and the residents of New York.

    I thank Senate Minority Leader John Flanagan for honorably serving as the
    leader of the Republican Conference. During his time as leader and throughout
    his tenure in the Legislature, Sen. Flanagan has served his constituents and the
    people of this state with remarkable leadership, dedication, ability, commitment
    and tenacity. He has been a reliable presence and confidant and, most
    importantly, a good friend during my time in the Senate, and I appreciate all that
    he has been able to accomplish.”
