It's a first for Irondequoit Assemblyman Joe Morelle. On Wednesday, he will officially recommend his son for a seat in the Monroe County Legislature.

Joe Morelle Junior could take over Ted O'Brien's seat. O'Brien is now a state senator.

Morelle’s father, who is also Monroe County’s Democratic Party chairman, will send a letter to the Legislature's president. This is the first time the assemblyman has written a letter on behalf of a family member.

The Democratic Party Committee of Irondequoit unanimously voted to put the Morelle Jr.’s name up for consideration.
