Hawley has Orleans Conservative Party support
The Orleans County Conservative Party has endorsed Steve Hawley of Batavia in his re-election effort for the 139th Assembly District, which includes all of Genesee, most of Orleans and a portion of western Monroe.
Al Lofthouse, the party chairman, said Hawley pushes party principles for a smaller state government.
Hawley met with the local Conservative Party leaders on Thursday and received their support. He has served as Assemblyman since a special election in February 2006.
His district includes all of Orleans except the town of Shelby, which is represented by Jane Corwin of Clarence.
