Nearly 300 people attended the official opening for Hillary Rodham Clinton's local headquarters at the West Erie Plaza.
Among those who gave remarks were Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott, County Executive Mark DiVecchio and Erie City Councilwoman Rubye Jenkins-Husband. Also, two delegate candidates who are pledged to Clinton -- Judy Lynch, the former county executive, and Gayle Wright, a former city councilwoman and former state House member, spoke at the gathering.
More than 200 people signed up as volunteers for the campaign, said Kamyl Bazbaz, the Erie press secretary for the campaign.
Bazbaz said the strong showing demonstrates that Erie supporters believe in Clinton.
