January 2015 Column - Year in Review – Chairman looks ahead to 2015

In the beginning on 2014 I was elected by my colleagues in the Legislature to serve as the first Republican Chairman in 37 years. It was one of the highest honors I have received during my tenure as a public official, and it has been a privilege to serve in the capacity. As we enter the New Year I have reflected on 2014 and I am very proud of the accomplishments the Legislature recorded and optimistic that 2015 will see continued success.

December 2014 Column - Legislature delivers tax cut in 2015 budget

I am happy to report that the Erie County Legislature’s budget amendments have resulted in a tax rate decrease for next year. The Legislature worked together to reduce spending without impacting services. As a result, we were able to lower taxes in 2015. The County Executive’s proposed budget only held the line on taxes but that didn’t go far enough for taxpayers.
