Lynn Dearmyer, a lifelong resident of Cheektowaga, Human Resources professional, and community advocate, today announced that she is running for the Erie County Legislature in the7th District.
Dearmyer is a 1994 graduate of Maryvale High School and received her degree in Early Childhood Education from Villa Maria College. She has worked in the Human Resources field for over a decade and is currently the Business Development Manager for Globalquest Staffing Solutions, Inc.

"I am running for County Legislature because I want to fight for the residents and taxpayers of the 7th District," said Dearmyer. "We do not need a professional politician who is looking for a promotion. I am a private citizen who has seen firsthand the disastrous consequences that can come from government complacency. The taxpayers of our district deserve to have someone in the County Legislature who speaks with their voice and is willing hold public officials accountable."
Dearmyer has been endorsed by outgoing Legislature Majority Leader Tom Mazur. In supporting Dearmyer, Mazur said, "Lynn Dearmyer is an energetic and hardworking woman. She has proven herself through community activism and she will be a full time legislator and a strong voice in the Erie County Legislature. Her independence will be refreshing."
Erie County Democratic Chairman Jeremy Zellner also announced that the committee is fully supporting Lynn Dearmyer.
"I am proud to endorse Lynn Dearmyer for the Erie County Legislature," said Chairman Zellner. "It has been my mission to open up the doors of our party to fresh blood and new ideas, and Lynn embodies those ideas. She is a relative newcomer to politics who has already made a real impact of the lives of Erie County residents through her community work and volunteer efforts. "
Dearmyer has over a decade of experience in the private sector and was recently recognized as one of Buffalo Business First's Forty Under 40 awardees. She is also a volunteer and committee member of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of WNY.
