Chilcott named as new Chautauqua County Veteran's Service Agency Director...

A retired U-S Air Force Colonel who has toured the world as an aviation administrator and instructor has been named as the county's new Veteran's Service Agency Director.  Acting County Executive Steve Abdella announced this morning in Jamestown that Buffalo-area native Gary Chilcott begins his new position today.  He replaces Doug Diers... who left for another position last August.  Abdella says Chilcott was one of three finalists named by a bi-partisan commission for former Executive Greg Edwards to interview.  He says Edwards then decided Chilcott had the best qualifications.  Abdella says Chilcott had a 28-year career in the Air Force... serving in a number of diverse positions in management, and instruction.  He was then heavily involved with the ROTC and Aerospace at Ohio State University.  Abdella adds that Chilcott has also been involved with the ROTC in public high schools in the region.  Chilcott and his wife -- who is a native of Mayville -- live in Bemus Point.  Chilcott thanked Edwards, and County Executive-Elect Vince Horrigan -- who was on the commission -- for their support.  He says he's "very excited" and looking forward to working with Horrigan.  Chilcott calls it a time of "new beginnings" with a new executive.  Chilcott says his first goal is to "refine" the fine customer service that's been established with the county's Veteran's Service Agency.
