Kathy Dahlkemper, the Democratic candidate for Erie County executive, has received five endorsements from current or former officeholders.
Millcreek Supervisor Brian McGrath, Erie County Council members Phil Fatica and Fiore Leone, former County Councilwoman Joy Greco and Jim McCall, a former Millcreek Democratic Party chairman, are all endorsing Dahlkemper.
She is running against incumbent Barry Grossman for the Democratic nomination in Tuesday’s primary.
In an endorsement that the five signed, they addressed Millcreek Democrats in a letter. “Please join us in supporting Kathy Dahlkemper for county executive. Erie County is at a pivotal point in time. Kathy has the ideas and skills to lead Erie County in the challenging days ahead,” they wrote.
They said that a vote for Dahlkemper is a vote for the county’s future.
The Democratic winner will face the winner of the GOP primary - Don Tucci, Thomas Wesley McGahen or Tom Loftus.
They will square off in the Nov. 5 election.
