HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw now has a challenger in the race of Hamburg Town Supervisor.

The 42-year-old is the Special Assistant to the Commissioner of the Erie County Department of Social Services. He began this job in the beginning of February, weeks before announcing his candidacy. Previously, he worked at the non-profit AARP in Western and Central New York, and before that, he was the Commissioner of Erie County Senior Services.

“Hamburg is my home and I want the very best for my community. That’s why I am running. Let’s move Hamburg forward.” Hoak continued, “Hamburg has some real issues that need to be addressed, from a declining tax base to development concerns. We don’t need divisive rhetoric and scare tactics. We need someone who is ready to show up every day to work for us. Throughout my career, from Dishwasher to Associate State Director, I have a record of showing up and getting things done.”
