The Working Families Party announced this week that Molly Clifford has received its endorsement in her campaign for Rochester City Council in the Northwest District. The Working Families Party (WFP) is focused on tackling the political, economic, and educational inequality that deprive working and middle class families of opportunity and chose Clifford as the best candidate to address these issues for Rochester's families.
"Molly Clifford has been an advocate for working families and a friend of the Working Families Party for many years," said Jesse Lenney, Upstate Director of the WFP. "We are excited about her candidacy and the progressive values and experience she will bring to City Council. We are looking forward to working with her on a strong field campaign as we go door-to-door to talk to Northwest Rochester voters about the Fight for 15, paid family leave, and other issues that will directly impact the inequality gap."
"I'm thrilled to receive the WFP endorsement," Clifford said. "The WFP has done a great job fighting for progressive issues, and I am honored that they recognized my work on the City's lead paint poisoning prevention program, diversity in the Rochester Fire Department, and support for the Fight for 15 and other efforts. I am looking forward to working with them during the campaign to talk to Northwest voters on the important issues that face them."
