New York State Assemblyman Kevin Smardz announced today that he will not seek re-election in the Assembly.
He has withdrawn his candidacy from the race for the new 147th district comprised of both Southern Erie and WyomingCounty.
In a statement Smardz sent out he said the decision was not east, but circumstances in his personal life required his attention and he felt it was unfair to taxpayers to do the job less than 100%.
Previously former East Aurora Mayor David DiPietro, businessmen David Mariacher and Chris Lane and Christina Abt of Eden stated their intentions to run for the seat.
