OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

December 2013 Column - Tough decisions must be made now rather than later

On the same day that a federal judge ruled that the City of Detroit could file for bankruptcy, a slim majority of the Erie County Legislature voted to approve the 2014 budget. I was not part of that majority.

HEAP Outreach will be held Dec. 4 at United Way of the Tonawandas

Erie County Legislator Kevin R. Hardwick announces that a Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) Outreach will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at United Way of the Tonawandas, 34 Seymour St., Tonawanda. Interviews will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m. Doors open at 8:30am.  All applicants will be interviewed.

November 2013 Column - Post-Election Reflections

Legislator Hardwick calls for STAR task force to assist county residents

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick has requested that Erie County create a task force assigned to research and promote the New York State STAR program to ensure that eligible taxpayers receive the benefits due to them. In part, the task force would identify eligible residents who are currently not receiving STAR and help them enroll in the program.
