News flash: senator makes it official with official announcement

By Tom Precious

ALBANY – She is running unopposed. She has been raising money. She has lined up the usual assortment of endorsements. She is already on the ballot on not one but three party lines. And, need we point out the obvious that election day is less than two weeks away?

But, along came a press release this afternoon from Sen. Catharine Young’s office that, yes, today she "announced that she is seeking re-election" to the Senate’s 57th Senate district covering Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany and parts of Livingston counties.

"Senator Young Officially Kicks Off Re-Election Campaign," the press release’s headline states for the Olean Republican.
