The Erie County Legislature Public Safety Committee approved three appointments to the Erie County Community Corrections Advisory Board (ECCCAB) at its November 20 meeting.
The three new members of the ECCCAB are: Thomas Diina, Superintendent, Jail Division, Erie County Sheriff’s Office, recommended by Sheriff Timothy Howard; William Schultz, People Inc., recommended by the Alternatives to Incarceration Program; and Kenneth Colon, Buffalo Urban League, recommended by the Hispanic Community of Buffalo.
“I am pleased we have been able to bring the ECCCAB to full strength by approving these new members,” County Legislator Timothy R. Hogues (D-Buffalo), chairman of the Public Safety Committee, said. “The new board members will join the Rev. Eugene Pierce, who chairs the board, and its other members in addressing some very important concerns as we develop the future of the Holding Center and Correctional Facility.”
