Following Dwyer’s announcement, Republican Chris Petrus says he will run for Cayuga County Clerk

Immediately following the news that longtime Cayuga County Clerk Sue Dwyer would not seek another term as clerk, a Brutus Republican announced his intention to run.

Chris Petrus, currently serving on the Cayuga County Legislature, announced his intention to run for county clerk on Wednesday. He currently represents District 4.


“I have had the distinct honor of knowing and working with Sue for many years and find her to be a consummate professional who has devoted herself to public service. I wish her all the best in her future endeavors,” Petrus said in a statement. “By working with Sue in my capacity as a Cayuga County legislator, I have had the unique ability to see the vital services the four departments under the purview of the county clerk’s office provide to the citizens of Cayuga County.”

He’s the first candidate to announce publicly that he would seek the position, which oversees the County’s DMV operation and records center.
