Steve Corryn, Chairman of the Monroe County Independence Party, announced this week that the Party will endorse Molly Clifford in her campaign for Rochester City Council. Corryn cited Clifford's experience in City government, commitment to the community and record of fighting for people who need it most as the main reasons for the endorsement.
"Molly has proven that she can balance the needs of citizens with improving governmental efficiency," Corryn said. "Her work to consolidate the Department of Neighborhood and Business Development, and to obtain the West Brighton Fire Department contract, are two significant examples of what the Independence Party stands for -- saving taxpayer dollars while maintaining services."
Clifford said she was grateful for the Independence Party's support. "There are a number of people in the Northwest District that identify with the Independence Party and its platform," she said. "I am honored to have the opportunity to represent them as we look for ways to save money for City taxpayers without eliminating services. I look forward to that challenge."
