Administrative History

George L. Ingalls, Republican, was born in 1914. From 1953-1965, he served in the New York State Assembly as a representative of the Second District in Broome County. During that time, he served on the Temporary State Commission on Water Resource Planning and the Rules Committee. In 1961 he was named Majority Leader. Ingalls kept that position until the Democrats won the Assembly in 1965, at which point he became Minority Leader. Ingalls soon lost Assembly support and was not nominated for another year as Minority Leader. This ended his career in the Assembly. Ingalls died in 2001.
