I have been honored to serve as an elected official for more than 30 years beginning as a Councilman for the Town of Caneadea, and serving the past 20 years as an Allegany County Legislator, with the last 16 years as Chairman of the Board. I have been blessed to serve with many County Legislators over the years who were willing and able to create and take advantage of opportunities and at the same time were not afraid to take on and overcome obstacles.
It appears that the majority of the current Allegany County Board of Legislators will be seeking re-election for 2022. This creates a situation where the time is right for me to exit the position as a County Legislator knowing that a very capable Board can continue doing what is right for Allegany County. We also have in place an extremely capable Administrative Team overseeing the day-to-day operations. I am grateful for the dedicated Department Heads and employees that have been part of our Allegany County workforce since I began as a Legislator in 2000, and what we have accomplished together.
