Brian Kolb Announces Candidacy for Governor
Kolb Running to End Corruption, Lower Taxes, Create Jobs, and Deliver Real Solutions

Canandaigua, NY - Earlier today, State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb announced his candidacy for New York Governor. Brian Kolb is running for Governor to deliver real solutions to the very real problems New Yorkers are facing under Andrew Cuomo. As Governor, Kolb would put an end to the political corruption and mismanagement plaguing the Governor’s office, lower New York’s cripplingly high taxes that make it too difficult for hardworking families to get ahead, and grow our economy to help businesses create good, sustainable jobs.

With an unemployment rate exceeding the national average, the nation’s highest tax burden, and the nation’s second-worst business climate, Andrew Cuomo and his administration are failing New York’s families.

“Corruption and dysfunction in Albany have transformed our state for the worse and left many feeling powerless to fight back - that ends today,” said Kolb. “As a proud native New Yorker, I believe in our state and I’ll stop at nothing to fix it. We deserve leadership that will foster growth in our economy and replace corruption with accountability. I’m running for Governor because I believe New York’s greatest days are ahead of us and, with the right leadership, we can make that happen now.”

Brian Kolb is a small businessman and community leader running for Governor to lower taxes, create jobs, and end corruption. Born and raised in New York, Brian Kolb comes from humble roots, and understands the value of hard work and honesty. A husband, father, and grandfather - Kolb will be the independent leader that New York families deserve. Learn more at
