On Monday, County Executive-Elect Vince Horrigan named the eight members of his transition team, which he calls a non-partisan group that is designed to provide an external assessment of Chautauqua County government strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. The group will then provide its recommendations to Horrigan in an effort for his administration to improve Chautauqua County service delivery and economic development.
Among those included on the transition team are:
- John Jay Warren – Northern Chautauqua County Local Economic Development Committee
- Dr. Gregory DeCinque – Retired JCC president
- Dr. Sue McNamara – SUNY @ Fredonia business professor
- Mike Roberts – President and CEO of Allied Alarm Services, Inc.
- Dr. Lillian Ney – Jamestown Strategic Planning and Partnerships Commission
- Tory Irgang – Executive Director, United Way of Southern Chautauqua County
- Aaron Resnick – Westfield Development Corporation
- Kelly Borrello – Town of Hanover Chamber of Commerce
As part of its fact-finding mission, the team will interview representatives of manufacturing, tourism, agriculture, retail, health care and technology-related businesses, along with representatives of academics, not-for-profits, foundations, local governments, and faith-based groups.
Horrigan won election as Chautauqua County’s next County Executive during the Nov. 5 election. He defeated democratic opponent Ron Johnson.
