New York State Sen. Joe Robach, R-Greece, will not be seeking another term in office in 2020.
Robach, who currently represents the 56th District for the State Senate, announced his decision in a video Wednesday morning.
Robach released a statement in addition to the video.
His statement in part read:
“It has been an honor and privilege to represent Rochester and Monroe County in the state Senate and state Assembly. I have had the opportunity to accomplish much, meet many great people and assist thousands of residents in our community throughout my tenure in elected office. However, I, like many others, am now suffering from the divisive New York City politics that have engulfed everything in the State Capitol. This has impacted my decision not to seek re-election.”
