From the Salamanca Press, July 17, 2006
The Cattaraugus County Board of Elections announced the list of candidates who filed petitions by the Thursday deadline.
Topping November contests is the election between Charles W. Couture (R, I, C) and Charles F. Hebdon (D, WF). The two are vying to fill the remaining of the late Gerard “Jess” Fitzpatrick’s term, which will end in December 2007. After Fitzpatrick’s sudden death in the spring, legislators appointed Couture to fill the seat until a special election could be held in November.
The only other county race before voters is for Cattaraugus County coroner. Candidates are Cleon W. Easton, III* (R, I, C); Mark A. Schindler (D, WF).
