Sep 30, 2012

Jeremy Zellner is the new Erie County Democratic Chairman.

The chief of staff for County Legislature Democrats defeated Cheektowaga Democratic Chair Frank Max in a vote of some 1000 committee members Saturday at the Hearthstone Manor in Depew.

The 34-year-old Zellner, a City of Tonawanda resident, replaces Len Lenihan, who is retiring after leading County Democrats for the past decade.
