Erie County Councilwoman Kim Clear has announced her intention to run as a Democratic candidate for Millcreek Township Supervisor in 2021, citing her experience as both an educator and on council as qualifications for the job. Her platform will focus on infrastructure upgrades, encouraging entrepreneurial development and small business growth, and welcoming advanced manufacturing while also maintaining the township's natural resources and green spaces.
"Millcreek has a strong community base with beautiful neighborhoods, a respected and effective school system, diverse successful businesses, and wonderful natural resources.
