An Erie County Legislature candidate will call for the Legislature to oppose expansion on Erie Community College’s suburban campuses when he holds a news conference at 2 p.m. today ► Tuesday Aug. 20 ◄ at Buffalo City Hall.

Pat Burke, a Democrat from South Buffalo, points out that while 47 percent of ECC’s students live in the city, the City Campus provides only 25 percent of ECC’s offerings. Burke notes that the Buffalo Common Council recently passed a resolution opposing expansion of the college’s suburban campuses.
