Democratic Erie County executive candidate Kathy Dahlkemper is unveiling her “mobile headquarters” strategy this weekend.
Instead of establishing a traditional campaign headquarters, Dahlkemper plans to move throughout Erie County, spending time each week at different locations to meet with citizens and answer questions. Her first stop will be Saturday at Lavery Brewing Co., 128 W. 12th St., starting at 9 a.m., according to a news release from Dahlkemper’s campaign.
Dahlkemper will then head into nearby neighborhoods to meet door-to-door with voters. Dahlkemper, a former congresswoman, is challenging incumbent Democrat Barry Grossman in the May 21 municipal primary.
“We are bringing our message to the voters, to their communities and to their neighborhoods,” Dahlkemper said. “We are taking our campaign message to them, rather than expecting them to come to us.”
Lavery Brewing is an Erie-based craft brewery founded in 2009. The company has more than doubled its beer production and began shipping its beers to New Jersey and Delaware in 2012, according to Dahlkemper’s news release.

    Mrs. Dahlkemper touted her “depth and breadth” of experience when running for Congress – in reality she had never tackled the kinds of complex and diverse issues that she ultimately faced in Congress. While vision is important in the county executive role – the last thing we need is a full-time “visionary”. We need someone who can actually do the job. Someone who has experience managing a $300 million dollar budget, who has handled complex human resource/labor relations issues, has managed a multidisciplinary workforce, with demonstrated success in strategic planning and large project/contract management. Mrs. Dahlkemper barely meets the minimum qualifications for this position. Voters need to take job requirements into account – this isn’t a popularity contest.
