Gabryszak still interested in county exec bid

Just about all speculation about a Democratic candidate for county executive centers around County Clerk Kathy Hochul and Comptroller Mark Poloncarz.

But another name continues to enter the buzz -- Assemblyman Dennis H. Gabryszak of Cheektowaga.

Albany sources say Gabryszak is ratcheting up his interest in the race, and is even talking to professional campaign types about the possibility of getting into the act.

Gabryszak could prove a potent force in a race for county executive, especially since he hails from the vote-rich Town of Cheektowaga, which could be lured back into the Democratic fold should its former supervisor opt for the race.

The assemblyman has expressed interest, but is not saying much beyond that at this point.

As the Democratic situation plays out, Gabryszak could become more and more of a focus of attention.
