Poloncarz aides come on board in county executive suite

The inner office of County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz is taking shape, and you'll recognize a few names from the campaign trail.

Several new aides for Poloncarz attended Thursday's Legislature meeting, where a restructuring of the county executive's office that added several jobs was approved. Among those who will be added to the county payroll with the new administration: 

*Heading up his inner office staff will be Jennifer Hibit as chief of staff. Hibit served as Poloncarz's campaign manager.

*Mark Cornell, who has been Poloncarz's spokesman in the Comptroller's Office, has moved up to the 16th floor as director of communications. He'll be handling both communications and policy in that role.

*Peter Anderson, who handled media requests for the campaign, will serve as a spokesman for Poloncarz. Anderson was a host on several community cable shows for Time Warner, including "Crossroads" and "All That Matters."

*Joseph McMahon is going to serve as an intergovernmental liaison.

*Brian Bray, who has previously worked for the Common Council, the Erie County Water Authority and the Erie County Legislature, will serve as Poloncarz's legislative liaison.

*Jeffrey Sheridan will work as a policy aide to Deputy County Executive Richard Tobe.
