Republican Brian Kolb on Tuesday was unanimously re-elected the GOP conference leader in the state Assembly.

Kolb, a lawmaker from Canandaigua, was first elected to the chamber in 2000 and has held the minority leader post in 2009.

He’ll be formally elected minority leader in the chamber when the Legislature returns to Albany for the 2017 legislative session. Speaker Carl Heastie, a Bronx Democrat, is expected to retain his post.

“It is an honor to be re-elected by my colleagues as Leader of the Assembly Minority Conference. I am proud to have the support and confidence of my colleagues. Their faith and confidence in me is truly humbling,” Kolb said in a statement.

“In only a few weeks, we will be back in Albany to carry out the people’s work. I am thrilled to report that once again all of our incumbents are returning, and we will welcome seven new members to our Conference. I look forward to working alongside these dedicated men and women throughout this legislative session and for years to come.”
