Tonawanda News — In the third district, Democrat Lynn Marinelli, who has been in the county legislature since 1996, is defending her seat against Republican Jennifer Stergion.
Marinelli noted the county’s efforts to work with Erie Community College to improvement employment conditions and her hopes to market more to Canadian visitors, as much of the budget relies on sales tax.
Stergion is an attorney in the Black Rock area of Buffalo and noted her experience as the leader and member of many organizations, including the president of the Women Lawyers of Western New York. She noted her experience advocating for veterans, and said she was invited to speak to Congress on the promotion of veterans’ affairs.
She also teaches other lawyers how to create and manage their own small businesses.
