Kathy Dahlkemper's signature was on a letter that requested religious exemption from President Barack Obama’s proposed executive order.
That order requested a ban on contractors from discriminating against the gay community.
Dahlkemper has since issued a new letter to the public and says she is sorry for her error in judgment.
Dahlkemper says her name has been officially removed from the initial letter and she is focused on the future of Erie County government.
