Longtime local Democratic Party activist and city official Molly Clifford is running for City Council.
Clifford is announcing on Friday that she is running for the Northwest City Council seat that Carla Palumbo has held.
Palumbo, who is now CEO of Legal Aid in Rochester, has decided not to seek another term due to her job responsibilities.
Clifford's bio includes a stint as chair of the Monroe County Democratic Committee, and she also worked in the City Hall administrations of Mayors Bob Duffy and Tom Richards.
Clifford says if elected she wants to work for families impacted by the high concentration of poverty in the city and help city residents live on safe streets and find good jobs.
