Legislator Ted Morton Continues Summer Listening Tour

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) began his yearly summer listening tour this week that will have him visiting with residents in Lancaster, Cheektowaga, Depew and Alden.

August 2016 Column - Odds and Ends

A few weeks ago, the Legislature approved changes to the Erie County Charter that were recommended by an all-volunteer citizens committee. With County Executive approval, the measure would have gone to the ballot for the public to have their say and vote on in November. Unfortunately the County Executive chose to veto the recommended changes. As a result, the Legislature anticipates voting on an amended version later this month, including some changes suggested by the County Executive. While I’m disappointed that the original package was vetoed, I’m optimistic that a revised version will be passed and that the public will have the opportunity to vote on it this November.

July 2016 Column - Restoring Como Lake

You may have read recently in the news about ongoing efforts to dredge Como Lake. Long considered a “crown jewel” of the county parks system, if you drive down Lake Avenue in Lancaster and take a peek at the lake, it’s clear that the jewel needs quite a bit of polishing.

This is an incredibly important document that sets the framework for the operation of the entire county including its elected officials.


May 2016 Column - Spring Work Begins

As many of you who have travelled Losson Road the past few years can attest, it has been quite a rough experience as road construction had stalled for quite a while.
