The two candidates for Erie County comptroller are waging a hard campaign to win voter attention in a low-turnout year, and both have recently posted videos to their social media pages touting their qualifications.
Democratic challenger Vanessa Glushefski posted a 45-second social media spot touting her credentials as a certified accountant.
"Our vibrant community, on the upswing after so many hardships, deserves a comptroller who is actually qualified and motivated to do the job right," Glushefski says into the camera. "That's me. I'm a CPA and an attorney."

Meanwhile, Republican incumbent Stefan Mychajliw flexed his professional, on-camera broadcast skills in a 30-second spot that features him walking and talking, and meeting with residents. It's been running on TV since Tuesday.
"I'm Stefan Mychajliw," he says, in an easy conversational style reminiscent of his days as a reporter for WGRZ. "You're the reason our region is coming back. My job is to keep the politicians in check and make sure they don't screw it up."
