A MESSAGE FROM COUNTY CLERK JACOBS: A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON IS A SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON

A MESSAGE FROM COUNTY CLERK JACOBS: A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON IS A SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON

the message is simple: don’t make the dangerous decision to Drink and Drive

As your Erie County Clerk, responsible for overseeing Auto Bureau operations, it is time to remind everyone not to drink and drive this holiday season and not to ride with anyone who has had too much to drink. If you have had too much to drink, for everyone’s sake, please do not get behind the wheel of your car.

We all look forward to celebrating this time of year with our family and friends, but if those celebrations include alcohol, you, as a driver, need to plan ahead and arrange for a safe ride home. People who make the dangerous decision to drink and drive will find that local law enforcement is serious about cracking down on reckless behavior.

“Thank-A-Vet” Program Honors Veterans

To each and every American who has worn the uniform of the United States, I simply say “Thank you for your service”   ~Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs

On Veterans Day, we honor the men and women who have served our nation, both in war and in peace; the men and women who answered the call to defend our nation. The United States rose to greatness on the strength of their service and their stories are woven into the fabric of our nation’s history. More than 26 million veterans are alive today, one million of which have been wounded and many of whom receive treatment for battlefield injuries and mental trauma suffered in battles few of us remember but they will never forget.
