Statement From Chester Gosper Campaign:
My name is Chester A. Gosper IV, a lifelong Allegany County/Angelica resident, and a candidate for Allegany County Coroner.
My family has lived in Allegany County for generations. I was born and raised in the Angelica/West Almond area, on a dairy farm. I started work at the age of 13 at the American House & Hotel, the former Six-S Restaurant and the Belvidere, and simultaneously as a bank teller at Maple City Savings in Hornell. After graduating from the former Angelica Central School “Class of 1990”, I studied accounting at Alfred State College.
A few years later, after being asked to join the funeral business, I obtained my degree in Mortuary Science from the Simmons Institute of Funeral Service in Syracuse. My apprentice work was completed at the Brown & Powers Funeral Homes. In 1999, we opened a third funeral home in Angelica and four years later I was made a partner. I. have owned the enterprise since 2009.
I believe my 23 years of service as a licensed funeral director, and my strong roots in the community, qualifies me to serve as your Allegany County Coroner and I would be proud to do so. Please come out and vote on November 5, 2019.
