County Legislator Vince Horrigan, R-Bemus Point, is running for County Executive.
Horrigan made the announcement Thursday at a Chautauqua County Republican reception at Shorewood Country Club in Dunkirk.
"Over my years of public service in village and County government, I have understood that so many of us come from different viewpoints but we all want the best for those who live in Chautauqua County. However, we must have a vision for the future to determine how we will solve the challenges that we face in our individual economic circumstances and demographics. Our collective success will require building consensus around efficiency, productivity, and economic development," Horrigan said in a news release.
