The City of Erie is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
Mayor Joe Schember saying it’s important to recognize the contributions the contributions of both Hispanic and Latino citizens in all Latin-American countries, but especially the achievements and contributions of our local Hispanic Americans.
“We’re growing, we are proud. I remember not to long when I sat in this room I watched the first Hispanic Latino person elected to City Council, so this brings me back to that moment, a very proud moment.” Mayor Schember said.
Hispanic Heritage Month runs until October 15th.
