Our general-election coverage, including endorsements and an in-depth look at the Green Party of Monroe County.

White wants a Rochester 'for us, by us'

Alex White, the Green Party candidate for Rochester mayor, is fired up about Costco. But not in the way you think.

Greens take aim at tax incentives

The Green Party of Monroe County is fielding three candidates for the five open seats on Rochester City Council. David Atias, Drew Langdon, and Dorothy Paige will face Council incumbents Carolee Conklin, Dana Miller, Jackie Ortiz, Matt Haag, and Loretta Scott (all Democrats) in the November 5 general election, as well as Working Families candidate Marlowe Washington.

Many choices remain for school board

There are three seats available on the Rochester school board this year, and incumbents Van White, Cynthia Elliott, and Jose Cruz are asking voters to return them to office. Our profiles of the candidates who ran in the September Democratic primary appeared in the August 21 issue.

ENDORSEMENT: Still the best candidate for mayor: Tom Richards

Officially, the campaign for Rochester mayor has narrowed to two candidates: City Council President Lovely Warren, who won the September Democratic primary, and Green Party candidate Alex White. Before the primary, we endorsed incumbent Tom Richards, but Warren won, handily, and she now has the backing of her party for the November 5 general election.

ENDORSEMENTS: City Council and school board

Rochester City Council Council's five incumbents – Carolee Conklin, Matt Haag, Dana Miller, Jackie Ortiz, and Loretta Scott – won the September Democratic Party primary for their at-large seats.

ENDORSEMENT: Vote no on casinos

Of the six proposals on the ballot in the November election, we are focusing on the most controversial: the measure permitting more casinos in the state. If voters approve the proposal, the state could get as many as seven new casinos.
