Morelle gets high-level Assembly post

Posted By on Wed, Jan 9, 2013 at 1:06 PM

State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has selected Assembly member Joe Morelle to serve as the chamber's majority leader.

Morelle lives in Irondequoit and his district includes the town, Brighton, and parts of the City of Rochester. He also serves as chair of the Monroe County Democratic Committee. During an interview last week, Morelle said he'd like to continue in that position, and that several other state legislators with high-level positions also serve as party chairs. But he also said that his ability to serve as chair would depend on his duties if he were chosen majority leader.
