Ray Walter for Assembly

Ray Walter for Assembly A proven record of protecting what counts for the people of Amherst, Pendleton and the Village of Williamsville. Lower taxes, more jobs, better schools.

Ray Walter was first elected to the New York State Assembly on November 8, 2011 and re-elected in 2012, 2014, and 2016. His district currently includes the Towns of Amherst and Pendleton and the Village of Williamsville. As a practicing attorney focused on elder law and estate planning, Ray observes first hand how our high taxes hurt the most vulnerable members of our community and force the most successful to move out. Ray’s goal has always been to work on behalf of his constituents to bring about necessary changes in government that will ensure future generations will have opportunities to raise their own families in Western New York. He currently serves as the Ranking Minority Member of the Committee on Economic Development and on the Committees on Ways & Means, Health, Insurance, Housing, and Environmental Conservation. For nearly ten years, Ray built a successful career in the private sector before going back to school and pursuing a law degree at the University at Buffalo. During Ray’s time in law school he was very active, serving as a representative to the Student Bar Association, and as President of the local chapter of the Federalist Society. Ray also clerked for the United States Attorney’s Office, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office and for an area law firm, after serving as a research assistant for the Erie County Charter Revision Commission. He graduated magna cm laude, was admitted to practice, and has worked for Magavern Magavern Grimm LLP since 2007. In 2009 Ray was appointed and later elected to the Erie County Legislature where he served until his election to the Assembly. Ray is an active participant in numerous civic and charitable organizations. He enjoys spending time with his sons Ray and Jack and coaching Amherst Youth Basketball and Lou Gehrig Youth Baseball. He previously served on the the board of the Amherst Senior Citizens Foundation, Amherst Traffic Safety Board, the Erie County Cultural Resources Advisory Board, and the County Executive’s Council on Economic Development.

Chairman Nick Langworthy

It’s time to Rebuild, Retool, and Revitalize the NYGOP!

Common sense must make a comeback in this state. That is exactly why we must Rebuild, Retool and Revitalize the Republican Party in the State of New York.

Ours is a Party sorely in need of some new passion, new energy and a new generation of leadership. I will bring all of this as your next State Republican Chairman.

Lynne Dixon for Erie County Executive

I’m very excited to support my friend Lynne Dixon for Erie County Executive!

I’m not a Republican or a Democrat. I am an Independent legislator and a single, working mom who knows what you’re going through. Our taxes are too high, our government spends too much, and Mark Poloncarz thinks he knows how to spend your money better than you do.

But I’m going to fix that – and that’s why I’m running for Erie County Executive.

To all who served, a heartfelt Thank You. Never Forget

11/07/2018

It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the people of the 146th District in the New York State Assembly. A huge thank you to my entire family and all my friends who supported me throughout these last seven years. I especially want to thank my Chief of Staff, Campaign Manager, Treasurer, Finance Chair, scheduler, volunteer coordinator, and chief ass-kicker all wrapped into one Erin Baker. I can’t ever thank you enough for all you have done for me over these last seven years. I also need to thank her other half and the greatest Chairman / political consultant anyone could ever ask for, Nick Langworthy. Your insight and ability is second to none. Thank you to the entire ECGOP team, present and past, for all your efforts on my behalf as well.

Thank you Scott Jordan for all you’ve done helping me get elected in 2011 and three more times after that. To all my staff members over the years (Sean, Forrest, Bridget, Lindsay, MP, Dan, Matt, Bobby, et. al.) who did a lot of work to make me look good for very little pay, Thank You!

There are so many people who have touched my life during my time in the Assembly it would be impossible to thank you all, but know you’re in my heart. Finally to all the constituents out there who we were able to help in some way, Thank You for your cards, notes, letters, emails and phone calls expressing your gratitude. These are the things that really mattered, the things that motivated, sustained, and pushed me to work so hard.

I am forever grateful to all of you for this wonderful opportunity that I’ve had. Although the election may not have gone the way we hoped God has other things planned and I am looking forward to the adventures ahead! God bless you all! ❤️

Our Assemblyman, Ray Walter, recently participated in the Developmental Disability Alliance of WNY Candidate’s Hour.

“It’s always a pleasure to participate in the DDAWNY Candidates Hour. I’ve worked closely with many families to ensure their loved ones get the services and support that they deserve. We need solutions to housing, transportation and employment issues that are unique to this community. We’ve made progress, but New York State has a lot of room for improvement. I will continue to fight to make sure NY makes these solutions a priority”

Every year, I sponsor a Summer Reading Challenge to encourage students to read throughout the summer. I am always honored to host a ceremony and reception for the students that read 40 or more days during their summer vacation. The look of accomplishment on each child’s face when I present them with their merit certificate is amazing. This year, I also read the very popular “Dragons Love Tacos” to the excited crowd. Thank you to all of the local children that participated and their parents that encouraged them along the way! Also, a special thank you to the Audubon Library and their incredible staff for all of their help hosting the event!

Today, Joseph Percoco, Gov. Cuomo's 'right hand man,' was sentenced to six years in prison for accepting bribes while perpetuating the corruption we’ve seen from the governor's administration. Sadly, this story will be repeated a few more times when a number of other close associates to Gov. Cuomo are sentenced in a few weeks. While I am pleased to see justice served, there is much work to be done to ensure New Yorkers are given the ethical and accountable leadership they deserve. I will continue to push for the changes we need to eliminate bid-rigging and pay-to-play politics in Albany, and remain committed to protecting our hard-earned tax dollars.
