Morrisroe.DUNKIRK – Democratic Chautauqua County Executive candidate Rich Morrisroe has announced he has received a series of endorsements from local labor organizations.“I am honored to have earned the support of my brothers and sisters in the United Auto Workers Local 2231, Laborers’ Local 621, and the Southwestern NY Building and Construction Trades,” said Morrisroe in a statment. “Organized labor is the backbone of a healthy economy and I will fight for a better tomorrow and shared prosperity for all workers every single day when I am elected County Executive.”The Morrisroe campaign has made restructuring the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) and investing in infrastructure, including working with the State Department of Transportation to make major upgrades to Route 60, top priorities for his campaign.The CCIDA is one of the worst performing IDAs in New York State when it comes to job creation and Morrisroe wants to build an IDA that provides economic incentives that benefit workers and the community, not just corporations, his campaign said. “When taxpayer dollars are used to attract a company, or used to subsidize tax incentives, that investment should be tied to living wages, local hiring provisions, and meaningful claw back clauses for companies that over promise and underdeliver on jobs and wages,” said Morrisroe.
