September 2015 Column - Library fundraisers support improved programs and building upgrades

It is hard to believe that it’s been nine years since I first had the idea for the Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers to benefit the libraries in my district. At first, they were very modest events, especially when compared to what they are today. This past year most of the libraries set a new record, hosting exceptional events.

August 2015 Column - Erie County bans dangerous pollutant, protects waterways

After waiting long enough for the federal or state government to take action to ban the sale of cosmetics and personal care products containing microbeads, Erie County took action to protect our water sources. At the July 30 session, the Legislature voted 11-0 to approve a local law that would ban the sale of face washes, toothpastes and any products that contain tiny plastic microbeads. The issue is that these beads are too small to be filtered out of the water at our treatment plants and end up in lakes, rivers and creeks causing many issues.
