Edwards says he's not seeking re-election to a third term... but, says seeking state-wide office is not what he's looking at right now...

The man who has served as Chautauqua County's top-elected official for just over seven years will not be seeking another term in office.  County Executive Greg Edwards made the stunning announcement from his office in Mayville Friday afternoon.  He says he made the decision after spending the past month talking about the matter with family... friends and political allies.  Edwards adds that he received a "tremendous amount of encouragement" to run again... but, says to "everything there is a season."  He says he's been "deeply humbled by this outpouring of support and encouragement."  But, he says after much reflection and discussion with his family... he won't be running again.  Edwards says there were several factors that played into his decision... but, says most of all... he never intented to make politics - quote -- "my career."  About three years ago... Edwards ran on GOP Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino's ticket for Lieutenant Governor.  While that was unsuccessful... it got Edwards' name recognition around the state.  However... he does NOT intent to run for state office.  Edwards also emphasized that while there was nothing holding him back from running for a third-term... the timing is right for him to move on..  He said he wanted to make the announcement now to allow time for members of his leadership team to look for work outside county government if they wish... and, for the county's Republican Committee to find a candidate for the upcoming election.
