Yesterday Monroe Democrats made history. For the first time in 32 years the County Executive seat is blue. We elected the first African American woman to County Court Judge. We picked up seats in the County Legislature, electing the first Asian American and Latina to serve.
We flipped Webster and Rush blue, and made Democratic gains in town board seats. None of this would have been possible without you.
Thanks to our grassroots supporters and Chairs Club members, the committee has the resources it needs to support our Democratic candidates and voters. Thanks to our Democratic allies in government and activism, we share a vision for the county toward which we made substantial progress.
Last but far from least, none of this would have been possible without the unstoppable army of volunteers who sacrificed countless hours, and then some, for our incredible candidates across the board.
This is what democracy looks like. Thank you.
I am so proud of ALL of our candidates, the Monroe County Democratic Committee’s (MCDC) largest slate in history, who delivered a powerful message of hope and promise for the future of our region. As Democrats, we all proved that the only way we can make change in Monroe County is by devoting ourselves to the cause as a united front.
Again, thank you for standing with Team MCDC. We are looking forward to keeping the momentum going and continuing to make history for Democrats in 2020.
