Albany Lawyer Announces Candidacy for State Assembly Seat

Mathew Tully, a partner in the Albany, N.Y., law firm Tully Rinckey & Associates, is running for the New York state Assembly.

Tully, a Hunter resident, will be seeking the 127th Assembly District seat now held by Daniel Hooker, R-Saugertis. Hooker, a Marine Corps reservist, has announced he will not seek re-election so that he can serve on active duty.

Tully, whose law firm has pursued a number of cases involving military reservist rights, is a member of the New York Army National Guard and served in Iraq in 2005.

Tully has also worked as a Corrections Officer and was a paralegal at Morgan Stanley.

He announced his candidacy on Monday. His campaign platform, Tully said, involves reforming state government, lowering residential property taxes, and creating the New York State Water Authority to manage the New York City reservoirs which lie within the 127th Assembly District. The district includes all, or part off, Columbia, Greene, Ulster, Schoharie, Delaware, Otsego and Chenango counties.

Tully is making his service in Iraq part of his campaign.

“I have been the first to do many things and I believe that I am going to be the first of many Iraq War Veterans to seek public office in the coming years,’ he said in a written statement.

“I have a genuine desire to change state government for the better, not just use this office as a political stepping stone,” Tully’s statement said.
