While it is incredibly hard to leave a job I truly love, I know in my heart of hearts that now is the right time for me to move on. I want to thank the people of New York's 22nd District and the people of the former 26th District who put their trust in me to be their congressman.  I am forever grateful for their support over the years.  They afforded me the opportunity of a lifetime.  Every day I've spent in Congress was a day I spent fighting for those who I represent. The people from the Hudson Valley, the Catskills, the Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes were always, and continue to be, at the front of my mind and the focus of everything I do as their congressman.
