JAMESTOWN – Residents of Chautauqua County were invited to meet their new choice for the House of Representatives on Friday.

The Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce held its federal congressional luncheon Friday with recently elected Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Tom Reed of the new 23rd congressional district seat at Moon Brook Country Club in Jamestown.

“I appreciate the support because we had a great turnout here in Chautauqua County,” said Reed. “That’s why we wanted to come over here immediately after the election to send the message that it’s not just about showing up during the campaign, but also showing up once you’re in the office. Chautauqua County is a critical component of Western New York, and we’re going to make sure that we’re here and doing the work.”

Additionally, following Tuesday’s election, it appears voters are not sticking to party lines. New York state voter enrollment forms show a total of 27,220 registered Democratic voters in the county, and 26,133 registered Republican voters. There are also 4,674 registered Independent; 1,978 Conservative; and 433 registered Working Families.

Despite these numbers, the county overwhelmingly voted Republican on Tuesday…
