NY SAFE Act - Opt-Out Form


Erie County government cannot shirk its responsibility to its employees or to taxpayers
These claims must be investigated immediately and it must be done by someone outside county government to ensure transparency
Law will be one of the strongest county ethics laws in the state
One of my biggest priorities right now is passing significant ethics reform at the county level. If passed, this would be the most comprehensive ethics reform the county has seen in decades.
Each year, legislators collect thousands of valentines and distribute them to the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station and other veterans’ posts throughout Erie County.

Legislator Joseph Lorigo has made the NY SAFE Act - Opt-out form available on his website.
