Press Release, Assemblyman Steve Hawley

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) will tour several farms across the counties of Genesee, Orleans and Monroe counties on Thursday, with stops in Elba, Churchville, Kendall and Kent.

Hawley is the former owner and operator of his family’s farm in Batavia, a past president of the Genesee County Farm Bureau and a long-standing member of the Assembly Agriculture Committee.

“Family farms are sadly becoming an endangered species in New York State with increased minimum wage requirements and the misguided ‘Farm Labor Bill’ which allows unionization and restricts an owner’s use of labor,” Hawley said. “I’m looking forward to this tour because our farmers have been shortchanged by Albany and they deserve to have their voice heard over lawmakers who have never even set foot on a farm.”

Hawley will tour CY Farms in Elba, Zuber Farms LLC in Churchville, Kludt Bros Farm in Kendall, and Lynn-ette & Sons Inc. in Kent.
