Rob Ortt
ALBANY — State Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, today called for Sen. Majority Leader Dean Skelos to step aside and let someone else lead the state Legislature's upper body.

Ortt joins with Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, R-Clarence, who Monday issued a statement calling on Skelos to abandon his leadership role in light of federal charges brought against him.

Ortt said the state's issues are too important for Skelos to attend to while also attending to his own personal matters.

His statement follows in its entirety:
There is a lot of work to get done in the Capitol, and I do not believe Senator Skelos can effectively lead our chamber in important legislative matters with this indictment hanging over his head. The functioning of the state Senate, and our state government, requires a leader whose sole focus is on the needs of New Yorkers. Issues like job creation, tax relief, infrastructure improvements, and education policy are far too important and they demand our undivided attention. Therefore, I believe someone else should step in to carry on the role of Majority Leader.
