Endorsed by the Chautauqua County Republican Committee
“As your Sheriff, I will work collaboratively with other Law Enforcement agencies, service providers and educators to combat the current drug epidemic,” Quattrone said in a statement. “Through positive relationships with local fire departments, service providers and law enforcement we will ensure that Chautauqua County is a safe place to live and raise our families. Our focus will be on improved, effective and efficient operations of the Sheriff’s Office to ensure the safety and security of the citizens of Chautauqua County.”
