When George Borrello was elected to the state senate in November, it set off a whirlwind of maneuvers in Chautauqua County government. Borrello vacated his post as Chautauqua County Executive, a position temporarily filled by Stephen Abdella as Acting County Executive. In December, County Legislator P.J. Wendel was nominated to take over as County Executive in 2020. While that promotion became official Thursday following a vote of the County Legislature, there could be more movement in the coming year.
