OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke pushes for Transparency and Accountability

Over the past few decades Erie County has increasingly turned to private companies to help taxpayers get the job done better, faster and more cheaply, or at least, that is what is claimed.  In many cities and states across the county government officials, taxpayers and journalists are dealing with a new problem, a complete lack of contractor accountability and transparency.
