3 county legislators headed to White House meeting on Thursday
ALBION – Three Orleans County legislators will be at a meeting at the White House on Thursday for county officials from New York State.
Legislature Chairwoman Lynne Johnson of Lyndonville, Legislator Don Allport of Gaines and Legislator Skip Draper of Shelby will leave Wednesday for the meeting and will return on Friday.
Because of the White House meeting, the County Legislature’s meeting scheduled for Wednesday was moved up to today.
Johnson said the county leaders will be meeting with “White House leaders to be determined.”
All three legislators had to pass background checks by the Secret Service.
“It should be interesting,” Johnson said about the session. “It’s the chance of my lifetime.”
