OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton and students at Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament School created cards on Feb. 8 for his 3rd annual Valentines for Veterans program. The cards will be delivered to the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station before the holiday to thank those serving for their commitment and sacrifice. 

We have heard a lot recently about the ongoing heroin epidemic that is plaguing our area. Many of us know of someone right here in our community who is suffering from this epidemic which has impacted people regardless of socio-economic status. This is an issue I take very personally. When I was in high school, my older brother died of a drug overdose. At 19 years old, he was robbed of his future, my mother faced the terrible pain of losing a child, and I was robbed of my older brother. That moment changed my life and has left a deep lasting scar.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton joined representatives from UFC at a press conference today at Pursue Martial Arts in Clarence to support efforts to legalize Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in New York State, which is the only state where the sport is illegal at the professional level. The press conference was part of a four-city tour in support of legislation currently before the NYS Assembly and Senate.  


I’m excited to begin a new year and term to build upon the work that the Legislature started the past two years. 2016 brings new opportunities to improve and challenges to tackle.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton was officially sworn-in for his second term during the annual reorganizational meeting of the Legislature held Jan. 7, 2016 in Old County Hall. A resident of Cheektowaga, Legislator Morton won re-election this past November.
