Judge Sedita remembered by Poloncarz, Zellner

By Robert J. McCarthy

   Two top Erie County Democrats -- County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz and Chairman Jeremy J. Zellner -- Monday offered their thoughts on the Sunday death of retired State Supreme Court Justice Frank A. Sedita Jr. 

   “Judge Sedita was the consummate judge, public servant and a devoted Democrat,” Zellner said. “He was also a wonderful family man, devoted father and a mentor to many in this business including myself.  On behalf of the entire Democratic family, we are saddened by Judge Sedita’s death and our thoughts and prayers are with the Sedita family.”

   "Judge Sedita was never afraid to take a stand, and his untiring efforts on the bench led to better communities and stronger neighborhoods,” added Poloncarz.  “His work ethic, professionalism, and commitment to the law made him well-known to many, and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sedita family at this time.”
