CONESUS — 133rd New York State Assemblyman Joe Errigo responded to concerns over his health.
“I’m fine, believe me,” said Errigo in a phone conversation with the GeneseeSun.com. “I was never lost in Wayland, they are all lies and it’s just people trying to get me out.”
The New York State Assemblyman is currently in a contested primary for the Republican nomination in the 133rd New York State Assembly seat and cited political motivation behind the rumors.
Errigo’s health issues were first reported by the GeneseeSun.com after multiple independent sources stated he was rumored to need assistance in his neighboring town of Wayland to get back home.
“It is unfortunate that the politics of personal destruction are being used by some people in Livingston County,” said Arnie Rothschild, on behalf of Errigo Campaign. “It’s unfair to damage the reputation of a long standing assemblyman simply for political gain. We hope that this stops immediately.”
Errigo further stated he has reached out to the Wayland Police Department and is awaiting a response.
“I’m looking into this to find out what all this is about,”said Errigo.
