A former associate deputy for County Comptroller Mark C. Poloncarz will serve as an "unofficial executive director" for his transition team as he prepares to move into the office of county executive.
Poloncarz told the Erie County Legislature today that he has asked Timothy C. Callan to serve in that role.
Callan, who worked in the comptroller's office from 2006 to 2010, has also worked for the Erie County Legislature's Democratic Caucus and as an aide to former Rep. John J. LaFalce. He has a doctorate in political science.
Poloncarz plans to announce members of the executive committee for his transition team on Saturday.
An aide to Poloncarz said Callan would serve in a volunteer capacity for the transition team.
