Today, Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz issued the following statement after Erie Community College President Jack Quinn announced that he would not seek another term as President of the College.

Poloncarz said, “I would like to congratulate President Quinn on the announcement of his retirement and thank him for his service to the ECC community. He and I have worked collaboratively on a number of issues during his term and I look forward to continuing our productive partnership for the remainder of his time in office, continuing to build a stronger ECC that works for its students, faculty, and the community at large. While Jack and I have not always agreed on every subject that came before us, we were able to find common ground and open lines of communication to resolve problems and move forward in a constructive manner, which is what the public expects and should demand from leaders in government. I thank him for his commitment to working through our differences and I wish him the best as he transitions into retirement. In the coming months I will be working with a search committee to identify a successor to President Quinn who shares not only his ability to bring people together but also his enduring commitment to creating the best Erie Community College possible.”
