Vacant Legislature seat attracts one application

LOCKPORT -- Only one application was received as of Friday for North Tonawanda's vacant 9th District Niagara County Legislature seat, Chairman William L. Ross said.

Former North Tonawanda Alderman Dennis J. Barberio submitted an application in person, but Ross said he expects some others might have been mailed before Friday's 5 p.m. deadline.

Ross and two other legislators are planning to interview the applicants Tuesday night, and an appointment to fill the vacant seat for the rest of the year is expected during the Oct. 6 Legislature meeting.

Only registered Democrats were allowed to apply for the unfinished term of Andrea L. McNulty, a Democrat who resigned Sept. 1. At the Nov. 3 election for a full two-year term, 9th District voters will choose between Democrat Christopher Perna and Independence Party member Phillip R. Rizzo, who also has the Republican nomination.
