Chautauqua County Legislator Larry Barmore announced today he will be running for the office of Chautauqua County Clerk.
"I will be seeking the office of Chautauqua County Clerk, succeeding Sandy Sopak who has held this position for the past 20 years and has done a superior job," said Barmore. "I join all the citizens of Chautauqua County in wishing Sandy a joyful retirement and in thanking her for the great service she has performed for the people of this county."
Barmore has spent the last 44 years in private sector business and 40 of those years as owner of his own business. "I have vast experience in managing a staff, working within a budget and delivering service to the public," said Barmore. "I feel my expertise in this field will allow me to make a seamless transition into the County Clerk's office and continue the tradition of service that the people of Chautauqua County have come to expect from the County Clerk."
