Former City Manager To Challenge Fairchild In County's 9th District

Recommended Posts

Former Elmira City Manager John J. Burin announced this week he will seek a seat on the Chemung County Legislature.

Burin, a Republican, is running in the 9th District, which includes parts of the city and Town of Elmira. He will face incumbent 9th District legislator William Fairchild Sr., setting up a Primary race for the Republican ticket.

Burin, currently an Elmira Water Board commissioner, replaced former City Manager Samuel Iraci in 2006. Prior to that, he served as city assessor. He retired as city manager in 2013. He is also a past member of Southern Tier Economic Growth, the Chemung County Industrial Development Agency, Chemung County Planning Board and Woodlawn Cemetery Commission.

Burin's goals include improving tax exemptions for senior citizens, term limits for elected county officials and proper staffing in the District Attorney's Office, among others.

William Fairchild, first elected in 2014, announced Friday he will run for a second four-year term.

Fairchild is retired from the Chemung County Solid Waste Management District, where he spent the past three as operations manager for the county landfill. He also served as highway superintendent for the Town of Caton, and as the gravel pit superintendent for Edger Enterprises.

Fairchild's goals include improving shared services between the county and City of Elmira, controlling crime and improving the county infrastructure.
