Some of former County Executive Dennis T. Gorski's close political associates continue to urge him to become reinvolved in local politics, say sources close to the situation, who do not rule out the possibility.
The sources said Gorski met Friday with former Erie County Democratic Chairman G. Steven Pigeon and lobbyist Jack O'Donnell to rekindle potential interest in a bid for county comptroller this year against Republican incumbent Stefan I. Mychajliw. Gorski all but ruled out the possibility last week in a conversation with Politics Now, though he did say he would "never say never."
Since then the sources say the former county executive is at least receptive to discussions about the possibility about the comptroller post, or possibly Erie County Democratic chairman in 2014.
An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated Buffalo Deputy Mayor Steven M. Casey was a part of the meeting. Casey said he did not attend.
