COUNTY LAWMAKER'S SON TO BE NAMED TO OFFICE

The son of state Assembly Minority Leader Charlie Nesbitt, R-Albion, is expected to get official approval as Orleans County's new chief administrative officer during next Wednesday's County Legislature meeting.

Chuck Nesbitt, 34, of Albion, is employed by the Empire State Development Corporation in Rochester. He was one of 13 people interviewed for the chief administrative officer post by Orleans officials.

Marcia Tuohey, County Legislature chairwoman, said she was pleased that Nesbitt accepted the job. His first day of work will be May 7, if he's approved next week.

"I'm glad to see we have brought a good, qualified candidate to the county," Tuohey said Tuesday.

Nesbitt will be responsible for assisting development and fiscal monitoring of departments, county officials said.

Nesbitt's pay and benefits were not disclosed by county officials Tuesday. He will replace Stan Dudek, who retired after 22 years on the job.

In the Assembly, Charlie Nesbitt represents all of Orleans County, as well as portions of Genesee and Monroe counties.

Carol Lonnen announced that she will not run for re-election as county clerk in the fall. Tuohey also recently announced that she will not run again. She serves the towns of Barre, Clarendon and Shelby.
