Erb has done share to aid county finances

The question for many seeking Blair County commissionership relates to the reassessment debacle.

While both of our other commissioners, Tomassetti and Beam, approved of the issue, Bruce Erb played no role in implementing it. Many chastise him for his involvement, but Erb did not get elected, let alone sworn in, until after the other commissioners passed it.

Erb commits countless hours to fix the problems at the county level. His decades of experience with banks and local boards helps him with budgets, finances and understanding how our community operates.

Erb remains the only member of the board to dedicate his time solely to helping the county. In addition to his work ethic, he helped author a budget that showed the county running an operating surplus for the first time since 2010.

I urge everyone to reelect Bruce Erb on May 21.
