The Cayuga County Legislature will have a new Chair on Thursday night after Keith Batman decided not to seek a third term.
In his last appearance as Chair on the Finger Lakes Morning News, he said on Tuesday lawmakers worked together to accomplish a lot over the past two years, including a review of the salary structure and other work that flew under the radar.
Looking ahead to 2018, Batman said in addition to water issues, the condition of the county’s roads is a top priority this year.
Batman added having Justin Woods in place as the County Administrator will help ease the burden of whichever Democrat is selected to succeed him as Legislature Chair.
The Democrat also quipped that he might come back on the morning show along with Republican legislator Tim Lattimore for what would likely be a lively debate on county issues.
