Today's editorial space is devoted to our endorsements in the Erie County Legislature race.
There are 15 seats, but 5 lawmakers (4 Democrats and a Republican) face no major-party opposition (or, for that matter, any opposition). In the remaining 10 races, we recommend votes for 8 Republicans and 2 Democrats. Both of the Democrats are incumbents, although one is a recent appointment; two of the Republicans are incumbents, one an appointee.
Here's the list:
District 1: Vincent Tobia Sr.
District 4: Raymond Walter (i)
District 5: Diane Terranova (i)
District 8: Ted Morton
District 9: Brian Wirth
District 10: Kevin Hardwick
District 11: Lynn Marinelli (i)
District 12: Lynne Dixon
District 14: Shelly Schratz
District 15: Edward Rath III (i)
