“I am honored to receive the endorsement of my party for Clerk,” said Whyte. “I believe in public service, and I look forward to putting my government, management and leadership experience up against Chris Jacobs’ record on the City of Buffalo School Board and letting the voters decide.”
“Support for Maria came from all corners of the county,” said Erie County Democratic Chairman Len Lenihan. “From Marilla, to Hamburg, to the City of Tonawanda, we are ready to stand up and support Maria based on her record of accomplishment.”
