Erie County union AFSCME Local 1095 announced today they will be endorsing Lynne Dixon in this year’s Erie County Executive election.
Local 1095 says they are unhappy with current County Executive Mark Poloncarz and will not support him as they have in years past. They represent about 1,500 members of the blue-collar workforce in the county.
Dixon announced back in February that she would be running for the Executive spot seeking the Republican line.
I’m not a Republican or a Democrat. I’m an Independent legislator & a single working mom who knows what you’re going through. Our taxes are too high & our government spends too much.
But I’m going to fix that – & that’s why I’m running for Erie County Executive. pic.twitter.com/O65Nn4y3uD— Lynne Dixon (@votelynne) February 27, 2019
