Community Spotlight for Sept. 19-27, 2020
This week, our Terry Frank speaks with the Democratic challenger in the race for Chautauqua County Executive, Rich Morrisroe of Dunkirk. Morrisroe has been Dunkirk City Attorney for the past three years, and has worked in a variety of capacities during his life. He says the county should have been quicker in it's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially regarding the announcement of the outbreak at Fieldbrook Foods. Morrisroe says he and his family came to the north county area a few years ago from Buffalo. He says he wants to work to improve economic opportunities here, and, bring back more young adults, and attract new residents. He says the move to attract an Amazon warehouse is a positive, but, questions what kind of incentives it may take, and how many real jobs will be created versus robots. We'll hear from current interim Executive, Republican P.J. Wendel, next weekend.
