Kresge to be recommended to fill District 12 County Legislature seat...

The District 12 Democrat Committee in Jamestown has named a woman to fill the seat that's been vacated by Fred Larson... who is now the city's new second City Court Judge.  County Democrat Committee Chairman Norm Green says the panel early last weekend unanimously recommended Beth Kresge of Lakeview Avenue to replace Larson... who recently stepped down from the County Legislature to take a newly-created post as the second Jamestown City Court Judge.  Kresge is currently a stay at home mom who volunteers in the community.  She and her husband, Jeff, have one child.  The District 12 Committee previously recommended that former Legislator Chuck Cornell fill the seat until a special election set for Nov. 4... but, the recommendation was turned down by the full County Legislature at its May meeting.  Green says the party's Executive Committee will also be meeting this coming Tuesday in Dunkirk to take up the endorsement of Beth Kresge as our party’s endorsed candidate for November.  The clerk of the Legislature this Monday will be receiving the recommendation from the Democrat’s district committee for the interim appointment recommendation of Beth Kresge, for anticipated action at the Legislature’s June meeting.
