I read with interest your editorial entitled "Residents Forgotten in County Home Vote." Although I am new to Chautauqua County politics, I have been extremely involved as a leader in other facets in our community for many years. It has been my experience that our Chautauqua County lawmakers, regardless of political party, make decisions that they believe are not only in the best interest of their constituents, but also the county as a whole. While individual legislators may not agree on the best course of action, their decisions are always made on that premise. The sale of the Chautauqua County Home to William Avi Rothner falls under the category of one of those decisions that, while we may not agree on the best course, ultimately, all of us, Republicans and Democrats, are voting for what we believe to be the best interest for the residents of our county.
