Lynn M. Marinelli joined the Erie County Legislature after defeating James DeMarco in a primary in 1996. The method was incorrect in some editions Thursday. DeMarco had been appointed to fill the unexpired term of Leonard R. Lenihan.
An article Monday about delays in the construction of Erie County's Public Safety Center wrongly stated that a building across the street, at 45 Oak St., had been purchased from a campaign donor to County Executive Joel A.
