Molly Clifford, a community activist and Rochester native, will announce her candidacy for the Northwest City Council seat Friday morning.
Clifford said, “These are tough times. Rochester’s concentrated poverty is taking its toll on our children and families. We need someone who is not afraid to stand up for these families and fight for our neighborhoods. I’ve spent most of my career doing just that, and I want to continue fighting for the people of Northwest Rochester.”
Earlier this week, current Councilwoman Carla Palumbo announced that she will not run for re-election.
