Legacy Candidate Déjà Vu

Ed Rath III, is the grandson Ed Rath, Erie County’s first County Executive, son of Ed Rath Jr, a State Supreme Court judge and Mary Lou Rath, former County Legislator and NYS Senator.

Ed Rath III currently occupies a seat on the County Legislature formerly occupied by his mother and has announced his candidacy to fill her former seat in the NYS 61st Senate District. Can you say legacy candidate?

Since it is appropriate to evaluate new candidates on their vision and existing elected officials on their record, the AmherstTimes Editorial Board has compiled Ed Rath III’s record of accomplishment for his twelve-year tenure on the County Legislature via the detailed graphic below for your edification.
