Primary focus 

The petitions are in, and it looks like the City of Rochester will have Democratic primaries for mayor, City Council, and school board. The Town of Henrietta will see a Republican primary for the supervisor's office between incumbent Michael Yudelson and current Town Board member Jack Moore. | Yudelson also has the Independence and Conservative lines. | As expected, Rochester City Council President Lovely Warren has filed petitions to challenge incumbent Mayor Tom Richards in a Democratic primary. Richards also has the Working Families and Independence lines. | Green Party candidate Alex White has filed petitions to run for mayor in November. He won't have to run in a primary. | Nine Democrats filed to run for five City Council seats, and 10 Democrats filed to run for three seats on the Rochester school board. | The Green Party has filed to run candidates for City Council, school board, and sheriff. | Not all of the races are set, because a couple of petitions are being challenged — a common tactic in elections.
