Ed Rath was born and raised in Amherst and attended Williamsville public schools through 8th grade. Ed graduated from Nichols School of Buffalo and subsequently received his college degree from Syracuse University with a major Political Science and a minor in History. In 2005 Ed completed the Executive MBA program at Canisius College – Magna Cum Laude.
For the past 20 years Ed had been working in the energy industry in sales, business development and management. Ed and his wife Amy make their home in Williamsville and have three daughters.
As a well educated fellow Ed could have done any of a number of important things, instead he is a lazy person. His last name, Rath, made it easy for him to run for a Republican seat on our Erie County Legislature. His mother and grandfather were in politics. His mother made connections for him with mostly crooked politicians who were booted out of Congress. It was simply time for Ed Rath the Third to win a seat.
Ed has been in the Leg for a long while doing little or nothing for the people in areas he is supposed to watch over and help when problems arise. He hasn’t helped pass any laws which were helpful to the people of his district. To be perfectly clear, he hasn’t helped pass any law.
Edward Rath the Third made the decision to not do anything which would bring notice to him. That’s the way he could keep his seat until the Rath clan could get him a higher office.
Ed doesn’t have the guts to fight against things which are bad for his people. He is lucky his district actually believes he is doing positive things instead he doing nothing. He’s at nearly every social or charitable function but look up his record of what is done for his district.
There is nothing really special above his education. There are hundreds of people in his district whose education is the same or better then his. Let’s give one of them a chance to take Ed Rath’s seat.
These are the members of the Erie County Legislature.
