MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County Executive Candidate Vince Horrigan is ready to move forward and approve the private ownership of the Chautauqua County Home to the proposed new owners.
The Bemus Point Republican and current Chautauqua County Legislator said that after visiting their nursing home near Binghamton last month and talking to the employees, residents, and families, he came away assured that the quality of nursing home care was excellent. He also said that he is convinced that VestraCare will actually expand health services and grow our jobs through the addition of assisted living options, as well as other health care specialized services.
Horrigan has been an advocate of selling the home throughout the process. His opponent, Ron Johnson of Fredonia, has said he’d prefer to first see if the county home operation can be improved before making an effort to sell it to a private buyer.
