Mark Assini says he is leaving his role as Gates town supervisor for a new job.
Assini tells News 8 that his final day will be November 7.
He has served as Gates Town Supervisor since 2010. Assini also ran twice for Congress in 2014 and 2016.
When he steps down, the town board will choose a replacement to hold the seat until the end of the term in December 2019.
Gates Councilman Steve Tucciarello says he plans to run for town supervisor.
