What is going on here?
Frustrating, isn’t it? You’re busy, you have a life, but you like to be well informed. Keeping up with national and international news is easy, maybe too easy, it’s covered everywhere and you know where to look, but where do you turn if you want to know what’s really happening in Pennsylvania or Erie County or how national news affects us locally? Where do you find stories with something more than a sound bite or press release, clear explanations with detailed information for someone like you? Well, how about right here?
Erie County Report will dig into the things that affect you, like state and local government, business, employment, education and more. Things to make you think.
Rather than taking a government press release or interview at face value, we’ll dig deeper. We’ll see if there’s more to it. Sometimes we’ll show you what is too often missed because no one bothers to mention it. We’ll give you another perspective. We’ll offer our opinions, but this site will be information rich so you can form your own.
More you and less government
Erie County Report also offers a view based on you making decisions for yourself, taking control of your own life and community and relying on government less, … a lot less. We’re going to dig into big government driven projects like Destination Erie/Emerge 2040 to show you why, in our view, it’s not based on the needs of Erie County and could lead to losing local control of our own communities. We’ll be asking questions like why is our county executive involved in green energy projects in another state and a lot of other questions no one else seems willing to ask.
When local media become cheerleaders for the same government solutions that haven’t done Erie County any good, then we need a fresh look at municipal, county and state government to see what’s going on. We’ll offer new ideas, too, things you can do right now for yourself, your family and your community without waiting for anyone to give you permission or fund some new program. If you think it’s time for us to do more ourselves and relegate government to a minor supporting role, you’ll like what you see here.
This isn’t for everyone
Let’s be honest, this highly informed, think-for-yourself, more freedom, less government approach isn’t for everyone, but it might be just what you’re looking for. Give us a try, bookmark this site.
