ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Tonight the Chemung County Legislature held a meeting, with one of its main purposes being to announce the new county appointees of County Executive Christopher Moss.
The changes in the county include:
David Sheen as the new Deputy Chemung County Executive, replacing Mike Krusen
Tom Freeman replacing Bill Hopper as the Director of Aviation
Vincent Azzarelli replacing Samantha Potter as the Director of Public Information
Peter Finnerty replacing Scott Fierro as the Public Defender
These appointees will not be official until after the legislature deliberates at their meeting next Monday night. Once the legislature when into a private session, we were able to speak with Chemung County Treasurer, Jennifer Furman.
She told WENY, "They're just going to get some additional information on these new appointees including background information and resumes. This is so they can do some due diligence before that meeting and cast their vote at that meeting."
Jennifer Stimson is also getting replaced as the Social Services Director, but her replacement was not listed on tonight's legislative documents.
