**(News alert!) Edwards won't seek a third-term as County Executive...

After a month of consulting with family, friends and political allies... Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards has announced he won't be running for a third-term this November.  Edwards made the stunning revelation from his office in Mayville this afternoon.  He says a number of factors played into his decision... including the fact he never got into politics looking to make "a career" out of it.  Edwards said he wanted to make the announcement now to allow time for his key cabinet people to look for work outside county government if they want, and for the county's Republican Committee to find a candidate for the upcoming election.
