Poloncarz backs Zellner for re-election as Dem chairman



   By Robert J. McCarthy

   As expected, County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz has announced his support for the re-election of Jeremy J. Zellner as Erie County Democratic chairman this year.
   Poloncarz made the announcement Wednesday evening before a gathering of town chairmen.
   “Jeremy is committed to supporting candidates who embrace true Democratic Party values and he is a real advocate for creating a better community,” Poloncarz said. “I look forward to voting for him again for another term as chair of the committee.”
   Zellner has always enjoyed solid support from the Poloncarz wing of the party, but could still receive a challenge for the chairmanship. Cheektowaga Democratic Chairman Frank C. Max Jr. has indicated he is interested in running for county chairman again in September, but has made no official announcement.
