Transforming Rochester 91

Why we should be more focused on home ownership than rentals.  We have solutions.  We look at what some other cities are doing to help the homeless that we could easily do in Rochester.

The next City Council meeting is Tue, Feb 20th.  Speak to Council is at 6:30pm.  Call 311 to get on the list to speak.  The more things change the more they stay the same with our City government.  We also discuss the state of our local minor league sports teams and how we can keep them solvent.

We update the Cobbs Hill Development project as well as Rochester's point system.  It's all ridiculous.  With the bad news about downtown, we look at Amazon's Hunger Game to improve our city.

Why hasn't the brownfield cleanup in the PLEX neighborhood taken place yet?  Ask ExxonMobil.  How can we help one of the poorest sections of the City?  Then, we win by losing.  Amazon is NOT coming to Rochester.

Housing is a human right.  The problem of Southview Towers is an indication that we need to look at housing differently.  We also look at the Silvon Simmons situation in terms of what RPD does and how our local judicial system works.

Alex White is running for Mayor

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

It is true I am once more running for Mayor and I am doing so because Rochester is getting worse not better.  Poverty is up from 30% in 2011 to 33% in 2016.  We have more than 3000 vacant properties in our neighborhoods, our schools still fail more than half our children, and we keep giving away more and more to rich developers to building housing like Eastman Garden Apartments which was given $600,000 in cash and then $18 million in tax breaks to create 52 senior apartments. 

This has to end to see what I will do go to my platform to get a glimpse of what needs to be done.
To see what others are saying about me and the press on the campaign see the links below.
