He's been serving in the state Senate in 2014. However, he was first elected to the state Assembly during a special election in 2007, where he served people in the 105th Assembly District, covering Montgomery County and most of Schenectady County.

In a statement released on Friday, Amedore said:

"…I truly believe in public service and giving back to the community, and it has been a great honor to serve the residents of the 46th Senate District. As I have said in the past, I did not intend to be a career politician, and at this time, this is the right decision for my family and me."
