When the Monroe County Legislature meets tomorrow, it'll have two new Republican members. And a third one will be in office at the end of the month.
Three Republican legislators successfully ran for different local offices this past November, creating vacancies in the Legislature at the end of 2013. This afternoon, the county Republican Party announced that it had recommended three people to fill the seats and that Legislature President Jeff Adair had appointed them. They are:
- Larry Staub of Perinton, who has served as director of the county's Parks Department for the past few years. Staub has spent 25 years working in county government, says a press release from the county GOP. He'll take office effective January 30 to allow for a leadership transition in the Parks Department, says the press release. He's taking the seat previously held by Ciaran Hanna, who was elected to a Perinton Town Board seat.
- Brian Marianetti of Greece, an attorney and prior member of the Greece Planning Board. He'll take the seat previously held by Rick Antelli, who was elected Greece's receiver of taxes.
- Sean Delehanty of Fairport, who has served as a Fairport village trustee for the past two years. He's taking over for Mike Barker, who was elected Perinton supervisor.
This afternoon, Adair also officially appointed Democrat Leslie Rivera to a vacant seat in the Legislature. Rivera was chosen by Democratic Party members to fill the seat left vacant when Michael Patterson, a Democrat, was appointed to a City Council seat and resigned from the Legislature.
