March 2014 Column - County considers law to assist police in recovering stolen items

When a home is burglarized, the aftermath can be extremely toiling for the homeowner. Aside from having your security invaded, the victim is left dealing with the loss of personal items. In many cases, such as when jewelry or precious antiques are taken, memories and emotions are taken with those items. Too often, these irreplaceable items are never returned.

The Erie County Legislature’s Majority Caucus continues to implement initiatives that will improve efficiency and accountability within the Legislature. Starting in March, the entire Legislative staff was placed on the county’s electronic payroll swipe system; ensuring employees are accountable for their time worked.

February 2014 Column - Politics in government forces significant, unnecessary divides

Last month, Gov. Cuomo made public remarks that “extreme conservatives have no place in the State of New York.” While the comments were off-the-cuff, and taken slightly out of context, they upset a large number of people. He must realize that his comments were offensive and divisive, and should have no role in state government.

‘Passports on the Move’ coming to Elma

Town Supervisor Dennis Powers, Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs and Erie County Majority Leader Joseph Lorigo will co-host a “Passports on the Move” outreach event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 13, at Elma Town Hall, 1600 Bowen Road, Elma.

Legislator Lorigo urges State to explore all options to assist West Seneca flooding victims

Erie County Legislature Majority Leader Joseph Lorigo has reached out to New York State leaders asking them to explore all possible options to assist West Seneca residents whose homes were flooded earlier this month. 

January 2014 Column - Legislature’s change in leadership forces new oversight

With new leadership in place at the Erie County Legislature, increased oversight will naturally follow.  For the past two years, the County Executive had the benefit of a Democratic-controlled County Legislature.  I believe this allowed for gaps in the checks and balances between the two levels of government. 

December 2013 Column - Today's hasty decisions could have long lasting implications

As the Erie County Legislature closes out the year, some action has been taken that doesn’t reflect how I believe government should run.
