Gorski calls comeback 'highly unlikely'

   By Robert J. McCarthy

   A political come back for Dennis T. Gorski?

   "Highly unlikely," says the former three-term county executive.

   Several sources have indicated in recent days that efforts are under way to coax the Democrat back into the world of politics, this time for county comptroller. They want him to face Republican incumbent Stefan I. Mychajliw in the November general election.

   But Gorski, 68, says he's not interested.

   "I've been at the top of county government and the prospect of me running is highly unlikely," he said late Friday.

   It is expected some of Gorski's old team will still try to persuade him to get into the race since he is now retired.

   "I think I've sufficiently dismissed it," he said Friday.

   Gorski, who formerly represented Cheektowaga in the State Assembly, was elected as county executive in 1987 and served as until he was defeated by Republican Joel A. Giambra 1999.
