Erie County Legislator Howard Johnson honored Ms. Elizabeth Triggs as the very first Citizen of the Month for 2021 during the Erie County Legislature’s January 21st Session held over Zoom. As the Legislator from the 1st Legislative District, Johnson offered numerous kind words regarding Triggs’ selfless dedication to providing food and other nourishment to her community during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Ms. Triggs is the founder of None Like You/We Care, an organization that works on community beautification with high-risk youth throughout the City of Buffalo. Her group focuses on environmental justice, educational outreach, and food insecurity as their main issues. For over 35 years, she has dedicated herself to providing support for those needing it most throughout the City of Buffalo.
Legislator Howard Johnson said, “Ms. Triggs has the kind of legacy throughout this City we should all aspire to attain. She has left generations of young people in much better places than they’d be without her love and guidance. I’m honored to present her with a proclamation for all of her good work, and especially that which she’s continued to do during these most difficult times.”
An East Side resident, Ms. Triggs was able to appear safely to accept her proclamation virtually and was graciously thanked by the entire Legislative body.
