The race for Chemung County Sheriff begins

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 News) - Christopher Moss seeks re-election for Chemung County. His opponent is Art Laurey.

Moss has been Sheriff since 2005 and has been re-elected twice.

Christopher Moss has worked in the Chemung County Sheriff's office since 1989.

Moss has been mentioned as a possible candidate for County Executive after Tom Santulli retires at the end of his term next year, which would interfere with a position as Sheriff.

Moss served many positions, including Rank of Duty Sheriff, Investigator, Rank of Lieutenant in the Road Patrol Division, and Division Commander.

He runs against Art Laurey, who ran against Moss in 2013 but lost.

Laurey spent 26 years working with the Chemung County Sheriff's Office.

He spent 6 years as a marine.

Laurey is a board member at his church and volunteers with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

Voting ends Tuesday at 9pm.
