SILVER CREEK -- Assistant Minority Leader Alvin "Mac" Crowe has announced that he will seek re-election to the District 4 seat on the Chautauqua County Legislature.
Crowe, a retired Silver Creek Central School teacher and principal, is finishing his second term on the panel. The Republican acknowledges that it has taken the first 3 1/2 years he has served as a lawmaker to "feel comfortable and really competent as a legislator."
"Being retired, I have been able to dedicate the necessary time to the study and research of issues, and I have always supported what was best for the people of our county without political considerations," Crowe said.
District 4 includes Silver Creek, Hanford Bay, Sunset Bay, Irving and Hanover Center.
In addition to serving as assistant minority leader, Crowe serves on the Legislature's Public Facilities Committee. He has been endorsed by the Republican and Conservative parties.
