Mark Poloncarz reported on Facebook, “Statement of Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz on the passing of former Erie County Executive Dennis Gorski: “I am very saddened to learn of the passing of former three-term Erie County Executive Dennis Gorski. County Executive Gorski set the standard of leadership and good government all county executives following aspire to attain. A Marine who served in Vietnam, County Legislator, NYS Assemblymember, and later in life, Cheektowaga Town Justice, he led a life of public service that is unmatched locally. On a personal note, before I took office as county executive, I asked him for advice and he offered the following that I still rely on today: ‘never forget, we serve at the will of the people and do what you believe in your heart is in the best interest of the people of our great community and you will succeed.’ I offer my deepest condolences to his wife Mary Jo, his children, and all his many friends and family on his passing.”
Patrick Gallivan tweeted on Facebook, ” My condolences to the family of Dennis Gorski. He served our country, NY State and Erie County with honor and distinction in a career of public service that spanned more than 30 years. Our paths crossed frequently when he was Erie County Executive and I served as Sheriff. Dennis cared deeply about the community and the people of our region. May he forever Rest In Peace.”
