Erie County Democrats have one more chance to view their candidates for party chairman before Saturday's reorganization meeting in a Thursday debate.
Slated for 7 p.m. at the Polish Cadets Hall at Grant and Amherst streets, the event was initiated by attorney Marc C. Panepinto, one of the candidates.
"I am calling for a debate because I think Democratic committee members deserve the opportunity to make an informed chice," he said.
Jeremy J. Zellner, chief of staff to the County Legislature and another candidate, said he will attend. Cheektowaga Chairman Frank C. Max Jr., also vying for the post, did not return a call seeking comment.
