Every citizen of Allegany County has a stake in the upcoming general election. This election will completely change the composition of the Allegany County Legislature and impact every town in the county.

With a little less than a month until the ballots are cast, the Wellsville Sun will be providing ongoing coverage of both the candidates, or lack thereof. CANDIDATES: We want to hear from you and have established the following guidelines to provide fair exposure for every candidate:

  1. Every candidate for public office in Allegany County may submit a “Meet the Candidate” piece that introduces you to the voter and lays out the politicians resume, policy goals, and reasons for seeking public office. Please include a picture and any websites/social media pages that should be included.
  2. Every candidate for office in Allegany County may request a personal interview. These interviews must be either conducted in person or over the phone.
