Erie County Legislator Timothy R. Hogues (D-Buffalo) honored David T. Hore as the Erie County Legislature’s Citizen of the Month for January 2013 at the January 24 session.
Hore is a longtime volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Erie County, the largest provider of one-to-one youth mentoring in the United States. Legislator Hogues has also been a volunteer Big Brother for this organization.
“Few people have the ability to juggle the demands of family, career and community as well as David T. Hore,” Legislator Hogues said. “As a volunteer for BBBS, I have witnessed his dedication and hard work to ensure that every youth that passes through his care has a positive and enriching mentoring experience.”
Legislator Hogues presented a proclamation to Hore and several staff members from Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Erie County. Hore’s involvement with the organization came 18 years ago when he became a Big Brother to his Little Brother Dave. After the untimely death of the organization’s former president and Hore’s friend, Hore became BBBS’ President.
Hore continues to serve as a Big Brother while also wearing many hats in the organization, including his service on the President’s Council, as Co-Chair of the Annual BBBS Fore the Children Golf Tournament and as Chair of the first-ever Magical Moments Gala. Hore is also Co-President of PCB Group, Inc., a Western New York-based business that is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sales of sensors.
Every month, each of the 11 Erie County Legislators choose a Citizen of the Month, a constituent that deserves to be recognized for the mark that he or she has left on the community at large.
