Buffalo, NY – At a regular session of the Erie County Legislature, held in “Old County Hall” on Thursday, June 12, 2014, the Erie County Legislature unanimously approved the Erie Community College 2014-2015 budget.
Legislator Thomas A. Loughran (D-Amherst) said, “ECC plays an important role in our community by educating young people and also training adults with the knowledge and skills required to compete in the ever changing job market. I am proud to support this budget, as well as the ongoing capital improvements and new proposed STEM building on the north campus, in an effort to revitalize this regional asset that has been neglected over the years.”
