Assemblywoman Marjorie Byrnes has declared that she will not seek re-election in the upcoming 2024 elections.
This announcement came just a day before the start of the new legislative session in Albany.
Byrnes, who first took office in 2018, represents a district that spans the western part of Ontario County and the northern region of Steuben County.
Her tenure in the Assembly has been marked by her commitment to serving these communities.
State Senator Pamela Helming, commenting on Byrnes’s decision, praised her as a “true public servant” whose contributions will extend beyond her legislative career.
Helming highlighted Byrnes’s down-to-earth nature and unwavering commitment to her constituents, especially noting her partnership during 2023 when Helming first represented Livingston County.
In preparation for her departure from the Assembly, Byrnes has endorsed Livingston County Clerk Andrea Bailey as her successor for the Assembly seat. Bailey will be running to fill the position left by Byrnes.
