The Ontario County Republican Committee has unanimously endorsed Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb for Governor of New York.
“Leader Kolb’s background in business, education, public service and community involvement will serve him well as governor,” said Ontario Chair Trisha Turner.
Ontario is the third Finger Lakes county committee to back Kolb for governor. The Yates County and Seneca County Republican committees announced their support two weeks ago. Also, nine Finger Lakes county committee chairs endorsed Kolb’s bid for governor this week.
Kolb has been a leader in state government since 2009 when his colleagues elected him Assembly Minority Leader. He was first elected to the Assembly in 2000. A resident of Canandaigua, his district includes all of Ontario County and a portion of Seneca County.
