Zellner seeks Garbryszak's resignation

By Robert J. McCarthy

Erie County Democratic Chairman Jeremy J. Zellner Friday called for the resignation of Assemblyman Dennis H. Gabryszak of Cheektowaga  following allegations of sexual harassment lodged by three former female staffers.  

Zellner issued the following statement:

"Today's troubling accusations about Assembly Member Dennis Gabryszak are very serious. If these allegations are even close to being true, the Assembly member should resign immediately and spare the community from further embarrassment.

"The people of the 143rd Assembly District deserve representation that reflects the values of our community and this behavior does not.

"There is no place for this type of conduct. The work place should be a safe and respectful environment for employees."

"This type of behavior is exactly what turns people away from politics and government and it needs to stop. This conduct is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by our party."
