As snow continues to surprise us by falling here in early April, it’s at least nice to know that spring is soon to arrive in full bloom, with it a couple of urgent issues have come before the Legislature.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton accepted the ALS Ice Bucket challenge in memory of a friend who passed away after years of battling the disease. He took the challenge along with his colleagues, Legislator Pat Burke and Legislator Peter Savage. The rookie Legislators were challenged by County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw.

Legislator Morton challenged Cheektowaga Supervisor Mary Holtz, Lancaster Supervisor Dino Fudoli and Alden Supervisor Bud Milligan. In addition to accepting the challenge, Legislator Morton will be donating to the cause.
