Rich Morrisroe
For Chautauqua County Executive

My name is Richard Jonathan Morrisroe, but please call me Rich. I am running for Chautauqua County Executive because I know Chautauqua County can do better. We need a creative leader, one who can think out of the box if we are going to put our county back on the road to success. I’m confident that with my proven leadership skills and background, I can build a 21st Century future of which all of our residents can be proud.

I am the endorsed Democratic party and Working Families party candidate, but I strongly believe that partisan politics blocks progress. If we want to succeed, we cannot get stuck in partisan battles and paralysis. We must rise to the challenge of working together to create jobs for the future and rebuild our economy. We can and we will make Chautauqua County New York’s westernmost shining star. To paraphrase Jerry Maguire, help me help you. Elect me your next Chautauqua County Executive this November 3rd.
