The Chautauqua County Democratic Committee says the party’s candidate for county executive will announce the start of their campaign during an announcement event on the front steps of the County Office Building in Mayville at 2 p.m. Thursday.
For the Republicans, Chautauqua County legislator George Borrello of North Harmony announced in April his intention to run for executive, following the announcement in February that current executive Vince Horrigan will not seek a second term in office.
This year’s local elections are highlighted by the county-wide executive race, along with the county-wide race for District Attorney and County Clerk.
Other offices up for election in November include all 19 Chautauqua County Legislature seats and various local government races, including all nine seats on the Jamestown City Council. The next mayoral election for Jamestown isn’t until 2019.
