Elmira, N.Y.—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R,C,I-Big Flats) released the following statement upon the passing of former Congressman Amory “Amo” Houghton, Jr.:

“On behalf of the entire 58th Senate District, which encompasses the city of Corning that Amo Houghton called home and represented throughout his life, in so many ways and so capably, our condolences go out to the Houghton family.  It was a privilege and a pleasure for my family and me to know Amo.  What a difference he made for this region!  His life and remarkable career in business and in public service was steadfastly defined by dedication, civility, compassion, great humor, and integrity.  He absolutely set the standard for a commitment to the people and the workers of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes.  He was one of the great ones and will be missed.”
