Erie County Councilman Edward T. DiMattio Jr., appointed to the job in December, will officially announce his candidacy for an elected four-year term on the panel Feb. 21 at the Wagon Wheel Family Restaurant in Waterford.
The event will start at 6:30 p.m. at the restaurant, which is at the intersection of Routes 19 and 97 in Waterford. DiMattio, a Republican, previously told the Times-News that he would seek a full term as County Council’s 6th District representative.
The 6th District includes most of southern Erie County.County Council, at a special meeting Dec. 21, chose DiMattio, 50, from a number of candidates to serve for at least the remainder of jailed former councilman Ebert Beeman’s term, which expires in December.
Beeman’s replacement had to be a Republican who lives in the 6th District.
