Dahlkemper statement on County Exec race

   February 26, 2013 3:11 pm

 

Here is former U.S. Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper’s statement confirming that she will seek the Democratic nomination for Erie County executive and challenge incumbent Barry Grossman in the May 21 primary:

I would like to confirm and clarify my plans. I intend to run for Erie County Executive this year. I have spent recent months pursuing various options, including a run for PA Governor. I have decided that serving the people of northwest Pennsylvania as County Executive affords me the greatest opportunity to help advance the region I love so much.

I am currently traveling on an educational trip with my colleague from Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, Rev. Charles Brock.

I will be making an official announcement the week of March 4th.

Please direct any inquiries to my daughter, Gretchen Dahlkemper-Alfonso, until my return.

–Kevin Flowers
