MAYVILLE - Although he is not seeking a third term, Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards admits there is still work to continue over the next eight months.
The Republican announced during a press conference late Friday afternoon, April 26 that after eight years, he would not be seeking re-election. However, he promised to be focused on the needs of Chautauqua County and its residents as he carries out the remainder of his term.
"It is a lot of time between now and January," Edwards said. "To set the record straight, we have a lot of things we are working on, important things that we will continue to work on. What you're going to see here out of myself and the folks who are working with me is ... we're going to finish strong. We're going to press right through the tape. We have work that people are counting on."
Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards is sworn in on Jan. 1, 2006.
Among the top priorities over the next eight months, Edwards said, are the North County Water District, 2014 budget and sale of the Chautauqua County Home.
For the North County Water District, Edwards promised to continue pushing forward with every possible opportunity to put public sewers around Chautauqua Lake. Additionally, he said he remains confident the county will find the right offer for the County Home, one legislators will accept.
