Questions have been raised about the hiring of Robb Poloncarz by the  Erie County Board of Elections. Poloncarz is the brother of Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz. Democratic Commissioner Dennis Ward claims that he reached out to Robb Poloncarz on his own, without influence from the County Executive. Poloncarz recently lost his job with the Water Authority after failing his civil service exam.

The Board job requires only that he be a Democrat and that he have basic computer skills.
