Drury, retired sheriff’s captain, to run for Niagara Legislature

LOCKPORT – Robert Drury, a retired captain in the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office now serving as senior district executive for the Boy Scouts of America, has announced he intends to challenge Niagara County Legislator W. Keith McNall in a Republican primary in the City of Lockport’s 13th District.

Drury said he has talked to the Democrats about running on that’s party’s line, too. Drury is a life member of the National Rifle Association and vowed to “stand up for the Second Amendment rights of all New Yorkers.”

“As a lifelong resident of Lockport, it is deeply concerning to me, the rapid decline our city is in. Unfortunately, party politics has played too great a role in accelerating the demise,” said Drury. “I believe that my experience in the private sector working for a major organization offers residents of Niagara County a new type of leader with a vision of growing our economy through private-sector growth, not annual tax increases.”
