October 5, 2011 - 5:41pm

The second annual Farm to Table picnic hosted by the Genesee County Democratic Committee will be held from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9 at Emery Park, located on Route 5 in Stafford. (In case of inclement weather event is being relocated to Stafford Fire Hall.)

Each year the Democrats choose a public servant to honor and dedicate the event to. It is part of recognizing homegrown public servants. Doug Call is the honoree for the 2011 Farm to Table picnic. And he's about as homegrown as they come.

Doug served as Genesee County Sheriff  from 1981 to 1988 and is just completing 21 years as Stafford town justice. Because of the broad countywide bipartisan support for Doug Call, this event will be non-political. Everyone in the Genesee County community is welcome to attend regardless of political affiliation.

Tickets are $15 and $5 for children under 12, and include locally made Clor's Italian sausage, salt potatoes, local side dishes, beverages and dessert. Tickets are available at the Stafford Town Hall, the Presbyterian Church in LeRoy, Stafford Town Chair Sharon Valyear Gray at 344-2248, Lorie Longhany at 409-6373, or any town chairperson.

On Thursday, the Genesee County Democratic Committee met at the Batavia City Centre to endorse candidates for offices to be voted on in November.

Three candidates were endorsed for the county Legislature.

In District 5, which encompasses the Town of LeRoy, Jacalyn Whiting was endorsed unanimously. She is a lifelong Le Royan who has been involved in numerous community organizations including: Le Roy School Board member (past and present); Sports Boosters; Le Roy Youth Football, Le Roy Little League, Le Roy Business Council and many other organizations.

For District 7, the endorsement went to John Deleo. He has been active on the City Charter Commission and the City Planning Board. He is retired from the NYS Department of Corrections.

Ed DeJaneiro was also endorsed for another term in District 9.

The Democrats had a surprise visitor when Congresswoman Kathy Hochul stopped by to say hello and thank the committee for their hard work and dedication in the recent special election.

Hocul spoke to the group about her first week serving the people of the 26th District and her resolve to work tirelessly for the good of all the people in the district.
