Another Republican has entered the race to succeed longtime Assemblyman Brian Kolb, in the 131st Assembly District.
Seneca County businesswoman and President of the Seneca County Farm Bureau, Ann Marie Heizmann will be seeking to fill the vacancy that vacancy in the district that includes Ontario and Seneca counties.
“Brian was a dedicated member of our community and was vital in supporting both business and agricultural interests of the area. We need to continue reflecting the interests of our community and making sure that we become a part of the strong economy our President has built,” Heizmann said in a statement.
She has lived in the Seneca and Ontario County area for 31 years having been active in community service in both counties. She currently lives in Tyre with her husband, Richard ‘Rick’ Meade who owns Meade Automotive Machine in Clyde. Heizmann owns and operates Meadeville Farm along with her off-farm positions.
“As President of the Seneca County Farm Bureau, Ann Marie has worked hand in hand with farmers and the working men/women. She understands the problems farmers and workingmen/women face. Her intensive resume speaks volumes for her knowledge and dedication to the working man/woman, farmers and businesses. She has the blue collar connection we need in Albany because she is blue collar.” Lou Ferrara, Retired Deputy Supervisor, Town of Seneca Falls.
