Wednesday, Artvoice received a fax inviting us to Pettibone’s Tursday evening, where Erie County Democratic Chairman Len Lenihan would be celebrated for all his hard work, etc. The fax said he would be stepping down today. Click here to read the fax.
Today, at 4:23pm, we received a fax saying he would not be stepping down.
“At the request of numerous Town and Zone Leaders, I am going to remain as Erie County Chairman to help our candidates in their important races this year. A Chairmanship transition during an election year for County Executive would be a huge distraction. Therefore I have decided that this decision should be put off until some time after the November election.”
