Dixon receives backing from Democrat Schroeder

 
By Robert J. McCarthy

   When Democrats endorse Democrats, it usually doesn't make big news.
   But when a Democrat endorses a county legislator who caucuses with the Republicans, Politics Now takes notice.
   That's exactly the case in the endorsement of Buffalo Comptroller Mark J.F. Schroeder, a Democrat, for Legislator Lynne M. Dixon of Hamburg, who is registered with Independence and caucuses with Republicans.
   "Lynne Dixon is an independent leader who is committed to the neighborhoods she represents, and is accessible to her constituents," Schroeder said. "I am proud to support her for re-election to the Erie County Legislature."
   It's not as if the race is uncontested. Democrats are challenging with Michael R. Schraft, whom they consider a strong candidate.
