Gerald Mollen and Jerry Marinich Say Goodbye at End-of-the-Year Legislative Session

By Emily Girsch.
With 2015 coming to an end, the working days of two area politicians are winding down.

In an end-of-the-year legislative session, District Attorney Gerald Mollen gave closing remarks as he reflected back on his 28 years in office.

"I'm proud of what we have done," said Mollen.

"A group of people that were extremely dedicated to the task. It's been a great year and I'm thankful to have had the opportunity."

Mollen will be replaced by Republican Steve Cornwell who beat him in the November election.

Also in tonight's session, Broome County Legislator Jerry Marinich said goodbye to his colleagues, as he is stepping down as Chair of the Legislature.

"I feel like I'm leaving it in great hands," said Marinich.

"I think Dan [Reynolds] is going to do a great job. I think the body's going to be behind him. He'll do well."

Marinich will be moving into a new role as Director of the Office of Emergency Services.

Majority Leader Daniel Reynolds was sworn in as the new chair.
