Legislator from Staten Island will visit Orleans County 4-H Fair today

Press Release, State Assemblyman Steve Hawley

In his continuing quest for bipartisanship, rare in today’s political climate, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) will be hosting Assemblyman Michael Cusick (D-Staten Island) in Hawley’s Assembly district to demonstrate the concerns and needs of Western New Yorkers.

In return, Hawley will visit Cusick’s home, Staten Island, at some point in the future.

“I am excited to host Assemblyman Cusick and show him how our lives are different in another region of the state,” Hawley said. “I am pleased that he accepted my invitation to travel the many miles to our area and his acceptance illustrates the bipartisanship and common bond we all have as state lawmakers despite the quarreling and vigorous policy debates we have in Albany. I hope other lawmakers follow our lead and remember that our common goal is to make all of New York a better place to live.”

Cusick is scheduled to be in Genesee and Orleans counties today and will see the NYS Veterans Nursing Home in Batavia, Post Farms in Elba, O-AT-KA Milk Products in Batavia, Oliver’s Candies in Batavia and the Orleans County 4-H Fair in Knowlesville.

“Although I have long represented a district in one of New York City’s greenest boroughs known fondly as ‘The Borough of Parks,’ I believe my trip to Genesee and Orleans may challenge what I have always thought of as ‘green space,’” Cusick said in a statement. “Very much looking forward to taking up Assemblyman Hawley on his kind offer to tour these beautiful counties.”
