Alex White for Mayor

Alex is correct. The Johnson/Duffy status quo has done everything to hurt Rochester's small businesses or drive them out into the suburbs. Something has to change to make Rochester vibrant again. Rochester needs new leadership with fresh ideas. It needs local people investing locally - not more national chain stores given taxbreaks in exchange for campaign contributions to local democrats. If the city needs tax dollars, they should stop the taxbreaks for campaign contributions precedent they have created and instead, support locally owned businesses who actually pay taxes.
