Dahlkemper wants diversity, inclusion officer for Erie County


Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper told County Council Thursday that even though 2021 presents “tough” budgetary challenges for the county, there couldn’t be a better time to create a new position of a diversity and inclusion officer.

Dahlkemper believes the “essential” position would help the county enact meaningful policy and other changes that address racism. Erie County Council, at the urging of Dahlkemper and council Chairman Andre Horton, declared racism a public health crisis in Erie County in September.

On Thursday, Dahlkemper returned to council to speak about creating the position.

“I felt this was so important that I had to bring it forward,” she said. “I know that’s difficult to do when you’ve either got a tax increase or you’re going into the fund balance.”
