Since 2009, Tony Jordan has been working in the Assembly to improve our region and our state. With a background in small business and law, he’s been taking on Albany’s biggest problems with common-sense solutions that deliver results.
Tony Jordan is adept at representing diverse communities, from small rural villages to bustling town centers and thriving Capital Region cities. He knows that the backbone of this region’s success is an economy based on innovative manufacturing, independent small businesses, productive family farms and the economic activity spurred and supported by the Saratoga Race Course and the horse racing industry. There is no better example of economic diversity in New York State than what is seen in Saratoga and Washington Counties.
Assemblyman Jordan has taken on roles in the legislature that have allowed him to work on some of the toughest issues facing New York State. Most recently, he’s been leading the debates in the Assembly as Assistant Minority Leader Pro Tempore. In his new role as the Republican floor leader he’s led the debates in the assembly, which means he’s been advocating for what working families need most: tax relief, job growth and economic development.
He’s worked closely in a bipartisan fashion with his legislative colleagues on the Assembly Committees on Local Government, Ways and Means, Codes, Judiciary and Banks. Tony was also appointed to the Legislative Ethics Commission and co-sponsored the “Public Integrity Reform Act,” which passed both houses in 2011.
Over the years, Jordan has delivered real property tax relief with a two-percent property tax cap for families, small businesses and family farmers. He continues to work on eliminating unfunded mandates on local governments and schools to lower property taxes for good. He’s been at the forefront of this battle and authored a report on the matter outlining detailed solutions about removing the burden of unfunded mandates.
Tony Jordan worked diligently to secure economic and infrastructure improvement funding for the Capital Region. He also supported increased funding to agriculture to continue bolstering this important sector of our economy.
Tony Jordan, husband to Wendy (Skellie) and father to Gabrielle (Gabby), Tricia, Luke and Eliza, makes family and community his top priorities. He is an active volunteer with the Greenwich Lions Club, Cornell University FarmNet Program, the Boy Scouts, youth soccer and basketball, the Knights of Columbus and other various community groups.
Jordan resides in Jackson and practices law as a partner at Jordan & Kelly, LLC.
Jordan, a native of North Creek, earned his Bachelor's Degree in business and finance from the University of Notre Dame in 1986. He later graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law in 1995.
