>Lundine resigns from health network
JAMESTOWN -- Stan Lundine, former congressman and lieutenant governor, resigned Friday as executive director of the Chautauqua County Health Network, effective July 13.
The network helps local residents get access to health care, and Lundine said he remains proud of that.
In 1997, with sponsorship from the network, Lundine organized the Chautauqua Integrated Delivery System, one of the first community-oriented physician/hospital organizations of its kind in New York.
