sARGENT FOR ERIE TRUSTEE
Most Americans hold a healthy distrust of government. Erie holds high debt and has recently endured a significant financial loss. Since the insurance company had denied coverage of $850,000 lost to a phishing scam, I would expect the town board to forego or delay some planned spending. In our household, we occasionally adjust our budget to deal with a large, unforeseen expenses. This board keeps on spending, even when the town staff advises the spending could be delayed.
Keeping Erie viable and reducing debt places Erie’s Interests First.
