Cheektowagans will soon find out which candidates will capture their party’s lines on the general election ballot in November, with the primary set for Tuesday, Sept. 12.

On the Democratic side, four candidates, including three incumbent council members, are competing for three seats on the Cheektowaga Town Board in November.

Current board members Alice Magierski, Tim Meyers and James P. Rogowski are running for reelection, and Brian Nowak is attempting to gain a seat on the board for the first time. Each seat carries a four-year term.

Meyers, Rogowski and Nowak are endorsed by the Cheektowaga Democratic Committee.

On the Reform Party line, Patrick J. Delaney, Roger Heymanowski and Doreen A. Friedrich are running. All three are also endorsed by the Cheektowaga Republican Committee.

Newcomer Susan B. Marrano is challenging incumbent Ted Morton for the 8th District seat on the Erie County Legislature for a 2-year term; both are on the Conservative ticket. Morton is also running under the Independence and Reform parties.

John Bruso will also be vying for the 8th District under the Working Families Party, as well as Julie A. Bish under the Independence Party.

Victor M. Canastraro II will run for the 8th District under the Green Party.

In the race for county clerk, Independence party voters will choose either Michael Kearns or Krystyna Karstedt in deciding which candidate will represent the party line in the fall elections.
