Today, in an email to supporters, Mike Ferugson – the 2017 Democratic nominee for Chautauqua County Executive – endorsed Democrat Eddie Sundquist for Congress.
This comes as a boost to Sundquist ahead of a critical vote Saturday for the Chautauqua County Democratic Committee endorsement in the race to replace Tom Reed. Sundquist already has received endorsement from other key Democrats in the county, including: Former Jamestown City Council President Greg Rabb; former Fredonia Mayor & current Fredonia-Pomfret Democrats chair Steve Keefe; and former Cassadaga Mayor and 2017 Chautauqua County Clerk nominee LeeAnn Lazarony.
With the endorsement of Ferguson, Sundquist now has received the endorsement of both county-wide candidates from the 2017 election.
In the email, Ferguson wrote:
“As we near our county’s endorsement for NY-23 on January 20th, I have fielded calls from numerous candidates that I had the pleasure of working with during my campaign. While I believe all the candidates have good intentions at heart, there is one that stands leaps and bounds above the rest of the field: our own Eddie Sundquist.
Yesterday, after consulting with numerous local groups and experts, Eddie’s campaign announced a Jobs Plan that will put our county back to work. His commitment to investing in the citizens of the Southern Tier, rebuilding the infrastructure here, and bringing 21st century jobs to this district is unrivaled. No one in this race has put forth such a comprehensive plan, and it shows exactly what Eddie is about – hard work, and a dedication to helping others.”
In response, Democrat Eddie Sundquist released the following statement:
“Mike’s commitment to helping the people of Chautauqua County is unparalleled. I want to thank him for his endorsement, and I am looking forward to the committee vote on Saturday morning.”
