Assemblyman partnering with health officials to protect WNYers
February 1, 2012
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R, I, C – Batavia) is working with state and local officials to diligently address the health issues facing Western New Yorkers. In the wake of the disturbing developments regarding Tourettes-like symptoms displayed by 12 students attending LeRoy Junior-Senior High School, the assemblyman is doubling-down on his efforts to protect the health of the entire Western New York community.

“The strength of our community relies on the health, safety and happiness of Western New Yorkers, and I am committed to making sure that no stone is left unturned in the quest to protect those needs,” said Hawley. “By working with health and environmental officials at the federal, state and local levels, I am pursuing every channel to ensure that we are doing everything in our power to prevent threats to the community’s health.”

The assemblyman has spoken directly with both State Health Commissioner Nirav Shah and State Department of Environmental Commissioner Joe Martens to share his insight regarding the developing tragedy in LeRoy.

“The situation in LeRoy is infinitely tragic, and swift action is imperative,” Hawley continued. “Above all else, it is the duty of public servants to protect our children, seniors and families. Nothing takes priority over the health of our fellow Western New Yorkers.”
