DUNKIRK – It’s beginning to look a lot like campaign season and Ron Hall, a former Dunkirk City Councilman and School Board member is running for the District 1 seat of the Chautauqua County Legislature.
Hall announced his candidacy in a released statement Monday.
“I believe there are some very serious allegations that have never been investigated regarding personal gains through having the inside track for selling property to New York State for local development. Public service should be just that, serving the public, and not about personal gain,” Hall stated.
Hall told WNYNewsNow the top issue in the district is the closing of NRG, Brooks Memorial Hospital and businesses in Dunkirk.
“I think a Legislator should at least be proactive in meeting with other (officials),’ Hall said.
Hall questioned what he called “a total silence” regarding the state of the district.
“Also, there has also been total silence from the district’s current representative regarding the state of the district. NRG closing, vacant properties downtown and Brooks Hospital’s pending closure are all within District One. Where is our legislator? Who is our legislator? People wonder and I hear this all of the time,” Hall said.
Hall said his record of service to the community is “unselfish.”
“I have an extensive record of unselfish commitment to our community. I want to bring that experience to the county legislature.”
Hall and his wife, Susan, are the owners of Hometown Insurance. Hall has formed his own campaign committee and can be reached at 672-9505.
