The Return of the Return of Lenihan
by Geoff Kelly - posted 1:34 pm, August 24, 2012
This week, outgoing (?) Erie County Democratic Party chairman Len Lenihan sent a letter to party town and zone chairs in which he lists his accomplishments over 10 years of leadership.
He then offers to stay on as chairman:
If our County Committee can’t make a united decision in the near future I would be willing to stay on as your chairman.
Together we can rebuild Unity and make Erie County one of the best places to raise a family. If you choose to allow me another term (in order for unity) then my fisrt goal will be to make sure that Kathy Hochul is reelected to Congress. We need a United team we don’t have time to fight each other for Chairman.
Lenihan has announced his retirement twice in the last year: last summer, under pressure of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s political machine, who wanted to bring peace and unity to the region; and just recently.
UPDATE: We’ve just been told this letter may be a hoax. If it is, does anyone know who sent it?
