ALBANY — State Sen. George Amedore, R-46, announced Friday he will not seek election to another term in office in 2020.

“After careful consideration and reflection, I have decided not to seek re-election to the New York State Senate in 2020,” Amedore said in a statement Friday afternoon. “I truly believe in public service and giving back to the community, and it has been a great honor to serve the residents of the 46th Senate District. As I have said in the past, I did not intend to be a career politician, and at this time, this is the right decision for my family and me.”

Amedore represents the 46th State Senate district, which encompasses all of Greene County.

He was elected to the state Senate in 2014 and has served three terms. Prior to his election to the Senate he served in the state Assembly after winning a special election in 2007. He served in the state Assembly until 2013.
