“A vacancy opened for the state Assembly in the 116th District this year, and veteran public official Scott A. Gray decided to jump into the race. He has been a member of the Jefferson County Board of Legislators for 20 years, ending his six-year tenure as County Board chairman at the end of 2021. The Republican nominee, Gray deserves to be elected to this position over his challenger, Conservative candidate Susan M. Duffy. Gray has shown himself to be a skilled leader with a pragmatic approach on the County Board. He works well with authorities of all political stripes, often providing the most rational voice in a deluge of divisive rhetoric.
He also will bring the perspective of a small-business owner to Albany, taking over Gray’s Flower Shop begun by members of his family years ago. He is grounded in the north country and knows key figures at the State Capitol, so he will be a true benefit in office.”
