Bert Dunn will not appear on the Working Families Party line in this year’s election for sheriff despite his earlier listing on the Erie County Board of Elections website.
Democratic Elections Commissioner Dennis E. Ward said this week that although Dunn filed for the line, the party did not authorize the candidacy. As a result, the Working Families line will not feature a sheriff candidate this year, he said.
Ward also said he does not expect the candidacy of District 10 Democrat Robert C. Hauger to survive challenges to his petition signatures. He had filed to challenge endorsed Democrat Lauren M. Gray.
