There is another candidate running for Rochester Mayor this year. He is the only Republican in the race, Monroe County Legislator Tony Micciche.
Micchiche had also run a write-in campaign for mayor in 2009, and it’s his contention that there haven’t been enough improvements since that time.
“Here we are, poverty’s going up, the graduation rate is stagnant or going down, businesses are fleeing, the state of New York in the past six years lost 857,000."
Micchiche is running as a Republican in a city which is heavily Democratic in terms of party registration.
