Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke (D) would like to congratulate Lynn Marinelli on her new appointment as director of intergovernmental relations at the Western New York Office of Empire State Development. “Her dedication to public service and the people of Erie County will continue in her new role with the State”, Burke stated. “Lynn’s previous experience with the Legislature and her leadership abilities will be a great advantage in her new job, which will benefit a wider base of residents in Erie County.”

Now that a vacancy has opened in the Third Legislative District, Legislator Burke would like to ask all individuals who may be interested in filling the seat to contact his office for information. The County Charter states that the vacancy must be filled by a member of the same party of the outgoing legislator. Therefore, the candidate must be a registered Democrat residing in the Third Legislative.

Please send all inquiries to or call 858-8480.  Resumes may be sent online or mailed to his office at Old Erie County Hall, 4th Floor 92 Frankin St. Buffalo, NY 14202.
