New York Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-139) calls his district "family-oriented and conservative." 

In his Know Your Electeds interview, Hawley says his favorite part of being a legislator is "helping people in their time of need." He also talks about ensuring that New York's Gold Star families have free tuition. 

Hawley has represented New York's 139th assembly district since 2006. His first job was working on his family's farm.
