CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, N.Y. — The Minority Leader of the Chautauqua County Legislature has stepped down.

Legislator Lori Cornell, a Democrat, says she decided to step down because she feels other legislators deserve a chance to serve in leadership roles.

Cornell, who served as Minority Leader for three years, also says family played a role in the decision.

She will remain on the county legislature.

Legislator Bob Whitney will replace Cornell as Minority Leader and legislator Billy Coughlin has been named Assistant Minority Leader. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
