Alex White focusing on poverty for Rochester mayoral campaign
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - While much of the Rochester mayoral race has been focused of the Democratic primary, another candidate is making efforts to set himself apart from others.
Alex White, the Green Party candidate for Rochester mayor, is no stranger to local politics.
White is now making a push to tackle poverty in the City of Rochester. He said Lovely Warren has created a long list of programs to help with that. But she hasn't focused on creating jobs and skills to attain those jobs.
Meanwhile, White said, poverty has increased ten percent under Warren's tenure in office.
"We're talking about a third of all Rochester residents, right?," White said Wednesday. "We need virtually every effective tool we can get."
The general election will be held on November 13, 2017.
