WATCH: Remembering Louise Slaughter

Mar 27, 2018

She’s been called “trailblazer,” “fearless leader,” and “staunch advocate for women’s issues.” And this week, Rochester remembers the life and influence of the late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter. In the process of reflecting on that legacy, comes another challenge, the idea of moving forward and determining who will fill the late Congresswoman’s seat and become her successor. Joining this edition of Need to Know to explain the next steps in this process is former Rochester Mayor and friend of Congresswoman Slaughter, Bill Johnson.
