Art Laurey to run for Chemung County Sheriff

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - A familiar face formally announces his run for the office of Chemung County Sheriff. 

On Wednesday night, Art Laurey welcomed the community to the Clemens Center for the big announcement. 

The former marine spent 26 years working with the Chemung County Sheriff's Office and plans to oppose the re-election of incumbent Sheriff Chris Moss. 

"I don't have an agenda to focus on anything other than the safety of the citizens of Chemung County," Laurey said. "I don't have to tell the citizens, they can just look around at the community and read the paper, watch the news, and they can see what's going on. We need a change and I'm praying and hoping that the citizens recognize that."

Laurey previously ran in 2013 against Moss but lost in the Republican primary. 

County residents will vote on November 7th.
