One of New York State's new legislators is a St. Lawrence University alumnus.

Will Barclay '92, of Pulaski, New York, has been elected to the New York State Assembly in the 124th district. Barclay, an attorney with the firm of Hiscock and Barclay in Syracuse, has never held elected office before, but is not exactly a stranger to state politics -- his father, Douglas Barclay, was a long-time New York State senator.

District 124 include the cities of Fulton and Oswego and the Oswego County towns of Granby, Volney, Scriba, New Haven, Mexico, Richland, and Albion, as well as a couple of Onondaga County towns.

Barclay earned his law degree at Syracuse University, and majored in government at St. Lawrence. He was a member of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, and studied in Vienna through the International Study Program. Barclay is a former member of the Alumni Executive Council, and his mother, Sara (Dee Dee Barclay), is a former University trustee.
