ERIE, Pa. — Sean Calhoun officially kicked off his campaign for Millcreek Township supervisor in front of a packed room at the Public House on Thursday.
Calhoun, 24, said he is looking to focus on three main areas: Reinvesting in Millcreek, making Millcreek run more efficiently and putting people of Millcreek before politics.
“Think of it this way,” Calhoun said,” so if we’re reinvesting in Millcreek we’re going to obviously reinvest tax dollars to benefit these people because township government really affects everyone on a day to day basis. So we want to make it work in your favor.”
Calhoun, a John Carroll University graduate, said he is committed to the community he has spent most of his life in.
“I was born and raised here,” he said. “I moved away for a brief period of time and experienced big city life. At the end of the day, I realized that Millcreek is my home — I moved back and I am now committed to this community.”
Calhoun currently works for Rep. Ryan Bizzarro as the district outreach coordinator.
