Laurey to Run as Write-In Candidate
ELMIRA (WENY)-- Sheriff's deputy Art Laurey will have to run as a write in Candidate in November's election for Chemung County Sheriff.
Laurey lost the republican primary to Incumbent sheriff, Christopher Moss, earlier this month. Friday, a judge held up a ruling by the Undersheriff saying Laurey didn't properly file paperwork necessary to run as an independent.
"We will continue to pray that people of Chemung county show up on election day," said Laurey. "We need change, so I am hoping that people are fed up with this and come out and vote and I hope that we can change this course of action."
The General Election is Tuesday, November 5th.
