Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz announced today the seven members who'll represent the county on Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's new-stadium exploratory committee.

Poloncarz will serve along with:

  • Richard Tobe, deputy county executive
  • Maria R. Whyte, Erie County commissioner of environment and planning
  • Kathleen Hochul, M&T Bank vice president
  • Michael Joseph, Clover Management president
  • Alphonso O'Neil-White, retired president and CEO of HealthNow New York
  • Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo president

Cuomo named five of his seven members last month:

  • Bob Duffy, lieutenant governor
  • Kenneth Adams, Empire State Development president
  • Byron Brown, Buffalo mayor
  • Paul Dyster, Niagara Falls mayor
  • Dottie Gallagher-Cohen, Buffalo Niagara Partnership

The Bills have yet to name their seven representatives to the committee.
