ALBION – State Assemblyman Steve Hawley thanked voters in the 139th Assembly District for strong support at the polls on Tuesday.

Hawley received about 95 percent of the vote against Mark Glogowski, a Libertarian Party candidate from Hamlin.

Hawley, in a statement this morning, said his priorities for the next two years will include creating a better business climate in Western New York that creates well-paying jobs. He also said he will work to restore Second Amendment rights.

“I am humbled by the overwhelming support that the people of the 139th Assembly District have shown me,” he said. “I will continue to faithfully represent them by holding town halls across the district so that constituents have the chance to let me know what they want to see from our state and bringing those concerns to Albany. I look forward to keeping a good thing going representing the good people of Western New York for another two years.”

Hawley, owner of an insurance agency in Batavia, has served in the Assembly for nearly nine years. The district includes all of Genesee, all of Orleans except the Town of Shelby, and four towns in western Monroe County.

In Genesee County, Hawley received 96.2 percent of the vote compared to Glogowski. In Orleans, Hawley had 95.1 percent over Glogowski and 94.4 percent in Monroe County.
