Lovely Warren Re-elected as Mayor of Rochester

Lovely Warren (D) has broken another record in Rochester history as the first female to be re-elected as Mayor of Rochester.

In addition to creating history, Warren plans to continue to develop opportunities for the advancement of Rochester and its residents. According to her campaign website, www.mayorlovelywarren.com, Warren has established “her early learning council to support Universal Pre-K… and under her leadership, the City of Rochester was successfully designated as an Investing in Manufacturing Community Partnership City in Photonics and Optics by the federal government.”

Warren is the first women and second African-American resident to be elected Mayor. Her re-election marks another moment in local history.

“It’s even more meaningful as we celebrate 100 years of women gaining the right to vote in New York state,” Warren said.

Voters also decided to re-elect Loretta Scott as President of City Council. Scott and Incumbent, Jackie Ortiz will welcome Willie Lightfoot, Malik Evans and  Mitch Gruber as at-large members who will officially represent the people of Rochester starting January 2018.

For the city school board, ROC voters re-elected Van White and Cynthia Elliott. The returning board members will welcome newcomer Natalie Sheppard. All elected officials of the school board and City Council are Democrats.

The Beat 105.5 is excited to congratulate Rochester’s elected officials and look forward to helping Mayor Warren, City Council and the Rochester City School District Board  carryout goals to help the ROC move to a new beat!
