There’s now one official candidate running for governor of New York in 2018, and that’s the Assembly’s Republican leader Brian Kolb. He announced in a video released Tuesday.
Kolb, who’s been an Assemblymember since 2000, is also a businessman. He’s the founder and past President of two companies in the Rochester area, where he grew up. Kolb says he’d draw on the experiences of both worlds if he were to lead the state. He says he’s been traveling and meeting with New Yorkers, and asking them whether or not state government is working for them.
