"Bringing Chautauqua into the 21st Century"
Salley for Clerk
The "Friends of Norm Green for Chautauqua County Executive" are putting on a "Tony Popielarz' Chicken and Biscuits with Mashed Potatoes" dinner fundraiser. In actuality, the fundraiser is for both of us.
The event is Wednesday, October 6, from 4PM to 6PM. It's at Blessed Mary Angela Social Center, 324 Townsend Street, Dunkirk NY 14048. You can dine in or drive thru or pick up. I will be there the entire time, so feel free to drop in and tell me what you think needs to be done in Chautauqua County. Tickets are $10 each. For tickets, send a check or money order to Salley for Clerk, P.O. Box 326, Fredonia NY 14063. Or make a donation via Act Blue ( https://secure.actblue.com/donate/salleyforclerk) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know the payment is for tickets to the Chicken & Biscuits dinner. Also let me know if you want the tickets mailed to you or held for you at the door.
Or you can buy them from me, if you see me between now and then. I will next be at the Marijuana Discussion at Fredonia Opera House on Wednesday Sept 15, from 7PM to 10PM.
Fredonia (4/8/21) Fredonia resident and political newcomer David Salley today announced his candidacy for Chautauqua County Clerk.
Salley is a computer science professional who has the skill and experience to work with current county employees to meet customer demands at the Department of Motor Vehicles in three county communities, direct efficiencies at the County Court House, and work with the Sealer of Weights and Measures staffs. “It’s all about the employees we have working now and me providing full time support and leadership so they can each deliver the best services possible,” Salley said.
Salley has done a wide variety of programming applications in a number of languages over his career, starting with Y2K programming for Plantrol Systems of Westfield and, most recently, database report writing for the Seneca Nation Medical Center.
The candidate is a 30-year experienced amateur historian, with membership in the Society for Creative Anachronism. He looks forward to working with County Historian Michele Henry, if elected.
Salley was born and raised in Buffalo in a Polish Catholic family and is a lifelong Western New Yorker. Since 2000, he and his wife, Dr. Karen Ehrlich, have owned and maintained a 150-year-old Victorian era home in Fredonia. The couple has been married for 30 years.
As a teen, Salley stocked grocery store shelves after high school classes and worked his way through college at a second shift factory job. The first in his family to graduate from college, David holds an Associate's Degree in Computer Programming from Bryant & Stratton, a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Canisius College, and was a non-traditional student earning a Master of Arts degree in Informatics from The University of Buffalo. (The field would later be known as Information Technology.) David is an Eagle Scout from Buffalo's Troop 22, earning nearly twice the merit badges required for Scouting's highest honor.
