May 2016 Column - Opposing a county-wide planning board, increased elected officials salaries

I do not support a county planning board. This proposal has been kicked around on several occasions during my tenure in government and I suggest that it be put away for good. Currently the Charter Review Commission is reviewing the charter and the County Executive has proposed a county planning board be included in the charter changes. There are several reasons why Erie County would not benefit from a county planning board.

April 2016 Column - Dispose of medications properly, keep them out of the wrong hands

Most everyone is guilty of this – storing unwanted or expired medications in our homes for months or even years, which can be very dangerous. While others flush them down the toilet, causing problems for our waterways. The solution to both of these threats is to participate in Drug Take Back events. This month, Erie County is working with community partners to hold events that make it easy for residents to properly dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications and needles.
