Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick is honored to once again serve on the Finance and Management Committee and oversee the management of the county’s $1 billion budget. He was also named to the Community Enrichment and Government Affairs committees during the annual Reorganizational Meeting held Jan. 5, 2012.

 

“The most important responsibility we have as Legislators is the oversight of the county’s annual budget. Ensuring that every tax dollar is spent wisely is always at the forefront of every decision I make,” said Legislator Hardwick. “I believe Erie County is on the right track, having recorded a surplus the past several years by improving efficiency and downsizing government, and we can’t afford to get off track.”

 

Legislator Hardwick added that he is looking forward to handling the issues put before the Community Enrichment and Government Affairs committees as the decisions made by those committees are very important to constituents and their quality of life.
