Erie and Niagara GOP Back Gary Dickson For Congress

Veteran, Retired Law Enforcement Officer, and Town Supervisor Enters Race for 26th District

Buffalo, NY – Today, the Chairmen of the Erie and Niagara County Republican Committees introduced their candidate for Congress in New York’s 26th Congressional District.  West Seneca Town Supervisor, Gary Dickson will be running in the April special election for the seat vacated by Brian Higgins, who retired earlier this month.

“The residents of the 26th Congressional District deserve a leader with a proven record of service to their country, and their community. Supervisor Gary Dickson is a veteran, a retired law enforcement official, and a Town Supervisor who has lowered taxes and kept his promises to his constituents,”  said Erie County GOP Chairman Michael Kracker. “Democrats feel entitled to this seat. But residents don’t need another career politician, whose greatest political accomplishment is the size of his campaign war chest.” They need someone who understands the challenges our communities are facing. Gary Dickson has a record of working across party lines to deliver solutions for residents, and I know he will do the same in Washington.”

“Gary Dickson is a veteran, a retired federal law enforcement official, and a community leader.  He recognizes the greatness of our country, but he also sees the incredible challenges before us,” said Niagara County GOP Chairman Richard Andres.  “He’s ready to do the hard work to ensure residents of the 26th District get the kind of representation they deserve: someone who works every day on their behalf.  Gary Dickson is a proven leader.  He delivers results, not sound bites.”

“Our country is faced with many challenges.  But my entire professional life has been about confronting issues and addressing them,” said Supervisor Gary Dickson, candidate for the 26th Congressional District.  “In my career in federal law enforcement, I worked as an investigator and manager, probing cases that included corruption, fraud, and money laundering.  As West Seneca Town Supervisor, I have carefully managed the town budget and have not increased taxes since taking office.   Where some see challenges, I see opportunity.  I have always been solution-driven and am eager to take on the many issues facing our country.  I know many of you struggle right now; grocery bills have gone up.  Inflation is high. Young people can’t afford to get into a home with current interest rates.  Folks are concerned about the safety of our communities.  Above all, I want to tackle matters important to you.”
