As reported by Amanda Fries in the Times Union, “Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay on Monday revealed his picks for the commission, appointing Charles Nesbitt, a former Assembly Minority Leader, and Keith Wofford, an attorney and 2018 candidate for state Attorney General, to the panel.
Nesbitt, an Albion resident, was first elected to the state Assembly in 1992 and served as its Minority Leader from 2002 to 2005. He represented the 137th Assembly District, which is now the 139th District, serving parts of Orleans, Niagara, Genesee and Monroe counties. He also served as president of the New York Tax Appeals Tribunal in 2005 and as a councilman in Albion.
Wofford, a New York City resident, specializes in bankruptcy and financial cases as the co-managing partner of Ropes & Gray, LLP in New York City. He also ran on the Republican and Conservative lines for Attorney General in 2018.”
