Pigeon and others to help Dobson TV campaign


   By Robert J. McCarthy

   Democratic sheriff candidate Richard E. Dobson has proven noticeably absent from the airwaves this campaign season, especially in comparison to the ubiquitous presence of minor party candidate Bert D. Dunn - and to a lesser extent - Republican incumbent Timothy B. Howard.
   But now it is expected Dobson will make the airwaves after all, despite relatively little success in raising funds for his own campaign after the WNY Progressive Caucus - closely tied to political operative G. Steven Pigeon - spent $112,000 on his behalf.
    But Pigeon said today he expects to donate at least $10,000 to the Dobson campaign in the next few days. Combined with other last minute donors - he said the money will allow the Democratic candidate to get on the air, too, for the campaign's final days.
