Legislators Thank Departing Colleague Peter Stein for Dedicated Service

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

The Legislature bid a fond farewell to Legislator Peter Stein, who last week announced he will resign from the Legislature effective September 22, since he is moving out of District 11 (Town of Ithaca), which he represents.

Calling it a “bittersweet moment,” Legislature Chair Michael Lane thanked Mr. Stein for his service. “You’ve been a terrific member of this board,” he said. “You’ve taught us a different way to think about things…how to apply the scientific method to some of the things we do, and that’s been good for us. You’re a teacher and an educator, and I think that is very important. We are sorry to lose you on the County Legislature, but we wish you the best for the future,” Mr. Lane said.

The District 11 seat will remain vacant until after November’s general election. According to provisions of the County Charter, in the event of a vacancy that occurs September 20 or later in the last year of a Legislator’s elected term, the winner of the general election for the office will fill the vacancy for the remainder of the unexpired term.
