Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick, R-Tonawanda, continues to support community organizations in his district by giving back a large portion of his salary to various groups. For the second consecutive year, Legislator Hardwick has chosen to donate $500 to the Tonawanda American Little League (TALL), an organization that is very important to a lot of families.

 

“The Tonawanda American Little League provided many enjoyable summers for the Hardwick family when my kids were younger. I want to help them continue their proud legacy of service to the children and families of the Tonawandas,” said Legislator Hardwick, who coached in the league for 16 years from 1990 to 2005 and knows firsthand its benefit to the community.

 

The funding will support TALL’s Walker Project, an effort to transform Walker Field into the league’s major field. The new field will allow TALL to attract and host a range of local league tournaments, including Little League’s own Williamsport tournament which in turn will help the league generate more revenue to maintain and improve the complex.

 

Legislator Hardwick pledged to give back $7,500, annually, of his Legislative salary to the community while continuing to fight for smaller salaries. Attempts to reduce the Legislators’ salaries last year were blocked by members of the Majority Caucus and the County charter does not allow salary reduction legislation to be voted on during an election year. Legislator Hardwick continues to advocate for reduced salaries while giving back to the community he represents.

 

Legislator Hardwick represents the 10th District of the Erie County Legislature. For additional information or to contact Legislator Hardwick, please call (716) 873-3438; email kevin.hardwick@erie.gov or visit www2.erie.gov/hardwick.
