AV Editor Geoff Kelly sent this dispatch from Erie County Legislature Chambers moments ago…
Erie County sheriff’s deputies will reportedly escort EC legislature staffers loyal to the previous leadership from their offices at the end of today’s reorganization meeting.
Rumored to be among the new hires under chair Barbara Miller Williams is Grassroots founder Maurice Garner and Independence Party chair Sandy Rosenwie. However, Garner denies he’s getting a job.
Miller-Williams won a 9 to 6 vote to replace Lynn Marinelli as chairwoman.
Robert Graber remains Clerk of the Legislature. Maria Whyte continues as majority leader.
