The Monroe County Democratic Committee is proud to submit our county-wide petitions for the 2019 election season.
Our county-wide designated candidates– Clerk Adam Bello for County Executive, Shani Curry-Mitchell for District Attorney and both Karen Bailey Turner and Michael Dollinger for County Court Judge persisted through harsh weather conditions to obtain an abundance of signatures to be placed on this year’s ballot.
“Despite entering into the petitioning season earlier than expected, we are gratified by the outpouring of volunteers and supporters–resulting in approximately 12,000 county-wide signatures to place our candidates on the ballot in November,” said MCDC Chairwoman Brittaney Wells
“Given the shortened petition period and the sometimes not so cooperative weather I am really amazed to see this many pages in the Countywide Democratic petition that was filed with the Board of Elections. In my 20+ years here at the Board I have not seen a filing this large by Democrats in Monroe County” said Board of Election Commissioner Thomas Ferrarese.
Hundreds of volunteers turned out to walk alongside our candidates collecting more than 7xs the required number of signatures. Democrats are energized and voters are eager for a change to an effective and transparent county government.
