“I’m honored to join my colleagues this week to discuss how counties nationwide are at the forefront of responding to COVID-19 and using recovery funds in ways that help our communities come back stronger,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “This is an opportunity to learn from others’ best practices but also to talk about Erie County’s challenges and successes in handling the pandemic and how we are reinvesting in our community to improve it for today and for future generations.”
