Congratulations to Senator Rob Ortt on his election as our conference leader in the State Senate. His energetic leadership, tenacity, and willingness to work across the aisle without compromising his core values will greatly benefit New Yorkers across our state. I am proud to see this battle-tested patriot—who on this journey I have come to count as a friend—receive this great honor and responsibility. If called by my community to serve in the Senate, I look forward to working closely with Leader Ortt to restore prosperity in New York!
