“Cape Cod will be best served with Eric Steinhilber as a County Commissioner”, said LeClair, “Eric will listen and be a thoughtful, well-rounded leader on the issues facing our community. As a husband and father of two young children, Eric is representative of the young families we want to thrive here on Cape Cod. I invite everyone across the Cape to join me in supporting Eric on November 6th.”
“Truly Mary LeClair is an inspiration to those in public service who represent the regular people who live here. Mary has never had an agenda other than to help people and give a voice to those who needed it. I will model my service on the thoughtful, compassionate and vigorous advocacy that Mary has shown us here for nearly four decades,” said Steinhilber.
