“I am honored to have been considered as a candidate to fill the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Mike Nozzolio, who I have worked closely with for the past 24 years. The Senator’s legacy and contributions to our region are immeasurable, and I wish him the best as he now focuses on a personal challenge.”
“I have appreciated the counsel and encouragement of so many of my friends, colleagues and community leaders in our region. After lengthy discussions with my family, I have determined that, although this is a great opportunity, it is not the right choice for my family and me at this time. I look forward to continuing my service to the residents of the 130th Assembly District.”
