Timothy R. Hogues, 41, who severely reduced his hours as operations manager at a local manufacturing plant to devote his energies to the Legislature full time, is the party headquarters’ pick. He has been directing his focus to the county’s role in promoting education, health care and public safety. Hogues said that also included the restoration of funding for public libraries and cultural institutions, which were threatened when his opponent was at the helm of the Legislature.

Barbara Miller-Williams, 57, a retired Buffalo police officer and former Buffalo Common Council member, said she was denied a chance to run on the Democratic ballot in 2011 after angering party leaders during her last stint as Legislature chairwoman. At the time, she said, she was accused of selling out her Democratic colleagues by joining forces with former Republican County Executive Chris Collins.
