I find both of these men totally vanilla, what are there passions for leading the county?

Horrigan summary

"I have no answers and I'm not really here to fix anything. Ask the struggling non-profits. You think the government is supposed to help people ?!?? HAHA"

Thanks, I know where I will vote.

One would wonder why they keep having more infants.. Is it because their welfare checks get bigger with each kid ??

If a candidate for county executive believes in growth, you'd think that candidate would support ways to encourage migrants to come to the county and integrate into the community. But what is Horrigan's idea? He's basically telling hispanics, if you want to come here, go find a church or something because if I'm county executive, I'm sure not gonna help!

It's a cynical, defeatist message for a man who claims to want to help Chautauqua County succeed.

It's probably 12 per 1,000, or 1.2%, rather than 12%. (Which is still tragically above average.) Speaking of which, can we get a county exec who understands math?

Epidemic obesity, use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco and indigent lifestyle all contribute to infant mortality. If these stats are true, we have a big problem with Social Services in Chautauqua County. No doubt the biggest part of the County budget, but the least effective in Welfare to work participation and now, highest rate of infant mortality in NY State. NY city is only a little more than 5%. We are at 12%??? That's worse than a third world country! What is going on here?
