Croscut Loses District 18 Primary

MAYVILLE – Fred Croscut’s 16-year reign in the Chautauqua County Legislature will come to an end Jan. 1, 2014.

David Himelein won the District 18 Republican primary for county legislature Tuesday with an unofficial vote total of 229-198.

Croscut, R-Sherman, and Himelein, R-Findley Lake – both current legislators – were forced into a primary when the current county legislature voted to downsize from 25 members to 19 members.
