Erie County Legislator Edward Rath announces the return of the Legislature’s Citizen of the Month Award, recognizing outstanding members of the community. Legislator Rath is seeking nominations for this honor and will recognize a resident from his district in June.

 

“Last year was the first year the Legislature presented Citizen of the Month Awards and I was amazed by the accomplishments of each honoree. I had the pleasure of recognizing a well deserving resident, Annette Adamczak, who turned a tragedy into the driving force behind educating thousands of people about CPR and AED machines, and I am sure she is solely responsible for saving many lives. Through this award, the Legislature is able to thank some of the citizens who make our community great and I again look forward to naming District 6’s Citizen of the Month,” said Legislator Rath. 

 

The Erie County Legislature has a long-standing tradition of recognizing individuals, youths and adults, that have achieved great heights in their professions, have retired from distinguished careers, have demonstrated excellence in the arts or sports, or have made extraordinary contributions to the quality of life or quality of place in Erie County.

 

Legislator Rath represents the 6th District, which includes the towns of Clarence and Newstead, Village of Akron and the northeast portion of the Town of Amherst.

 

To nominate someone for Citizen of the Month, please call 858-8676; email edward.rath@erie.gov; or write to Legislator Rath, 92 Franklin Street, Fourth Floor, Buffalo, NY 14202. Please include the nominee’s name, hometown and list of their accomplishments, volunteer work and any other pertinent information.
