Erie County is one of the most diverse counties in New York State. It is comprised of urban, suburban and rural communities with its residents made up of all races, ethnicities, religions and hailing from all walks of life. As such, Erie County’s executive should be a leader for the community, one who represents all of the diverse interests in the county. As YOUR County Executive, Mark has returned government to those who own it – the citizens of Erie County. Your County Executive must be a representative for ALL who live in the county, not just the select few who are campaign contributors or big business CEOs, and that is exactly what Mark has done since being elected executive in 2011.
Mark has traveled to every town and city of the county during his tenure as YOUR County Executive, listening to you on the issues that matter the most to his bosses – the people of Erie County. Mark will never forget his blue collar roots as the son of steelworker and nurse growing up with his two younger brothers in Lackawanna, and he applies the principles he learned from his parents every day as YOUR County Executive.
