Assemblyman Mark Walczyk, R-Watertown, was formally introduced to his new colleagues Wednesday and “made known his intent to fight Governor Andrew Cuomo’s agenda,” according to a news release from his office.

“It’s my honor to represent the people of the 116th Assembly District and being a tireless advocate for initiatives that will help create jobs and improve the overall quality of life for Northern New Yorkers. I addition, In also look forward to working alongside my colleagues in the Assembly, serving as a check on the Executive’s agenda,” Walczyk said in a prepared statement. “I am thrilled to be in Albany, working on behalf of the residents of Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties. By focusing on lowering our families’ tax burdens through a property tax cap, making upstate New York more business friendly by cutting unnecessary regulations, tackling corruption in Albany through ethics reform and term limits, and strongly defending our Second Amendment rights, I will work to ensure that the ‘front yard of America’ is a great place to live, work and raise a family.”

Walczyk represents the 116th District, the so-called “River District,” which includes parts of St. Lawrence and Jefferson counties.
