The Bronx Democrat and the chairperson of the Labor Committee has decided to resign from her post of ab Assemblywoman and take a job outside of government as informed by her spokesman on Thursday.

Works of Joyner

Joyner sponsored a plan to ban employee noncompete agreements statewide, as recorded in her last legislative session. Even though it was vetoed last month by Governor Hochul, the measure did pass the Assembly and the Senate. This measure could have been a major labor victory if it had been authorized and Joyner did try her best to make it happen.

Moreover, Joyner helped in securing $8.5 million in funding for the Sedgwick Houses. Sedgwick Houses is a seven-building, seven-decade-old Housing Authority complex located in Morris Heights. It is a home to about 1,400 people.

Special Elections to Replace Latoya Joyner

Since Joyner is leaving her post, Gov, Hochul will have to schedule a special election to replace her with an equally exceptional candidate.
