After 19 years serving the WNY community in the U.S. House of Representatives, I have made the decision to step down from Congress in February of 2024. It has been the honor of a lifetime to represent my hometown & I look forward to spending more time in the community I love.

The WNY region is a place like none other, a home known for its neighborly heart, a small city with big offerings & a place with a bright future. I am proud of WNY's transformation & grateful for the opportunity to represent the good people of NY-26.
