Aubertine Finds Life After Senate

Former Senator Darrel Aubertine, D-North Country, has been nominated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to serve as the Commissioner of the Department of Agriculature and Markets.
Aubertine previously served as chair for the senate's Agriculture Committee and the senate's Rural Resources Commission. Before serving in the senate he spent five years in the Assembly, during which time he was the chair of the Commission on State-Local Relations.
"Darrel's experience and expertise in agriculture is unparalled," said Cuomo. "He fought for years on behalf of farmers in the state legislature and delivered real results. New York's agricultural community will thrive with Darrel at the helm of this critical department, and I thank him for his service."
The position requires approval by the senate.
