Candlelight Memorial Remembering Those Lost to Opioid Addiction

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, at 6:30PM the second Candlelight Memorial to remember loved ones, neighbors, colleagues and friends who succumbed to the disease of opioid addiction will be held at the LaSalle Park Pavilion Bandshell. This event, occurring on International Overdose Awareness Day, is sponsored by the Erie County Opiate Epidemic Task Force’s (“ECOETF”) Family and Consumer Support and Advocacy group. Their goal is to save lives while erasing the stigma of addiction, and educate the community to treat addiction appropriately, as “substance abuse disorder”, a recognized disease.

July 2017 Column - Thank you to all who responded after the tornado

We all recall back in November 2014 when our community got 7+ feet of snow but some neighboring towns had nothing more than a dusting. Well, on July 20, 2017, Hamburg once again took the brunt of a major weather event when the first tornado in Erie County since 2006 came through a section of the town. It seems that our community gets more than our “fair share” of natural disasters, but I know we can handle it.

Legislator Dixon thanks County Executive for signing Ruthie’s Law
