Allegations against Moore put focus on Henrietta town supervisor race

November 07, 2017 06:37 PM

The race for supervisor in Henrietta is on our radar for Election Night because of harassment allegations against the current supervisor Jack Moore.

This summer, we learned several town employees filed complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Moore. The complaints had to do with how Moore treated and talked about the employees. His challenger is Democrat Steve Schultz.

It's his first campaign for office. We asked him about the allegations.

"That's not why I ran," says Schultz. "I ran because of all the re-zoning of farm land and the conflicts of interest that were present. That's what got me involved in the first place. The allegations largely came out after I'd already been running but there's no question there's a lot of people that are just fed up with it."

"Honestly, I think they're looking for another payday," says Moore. "I never made a labor decision without the labor attorney approving it first, nobody was harmed, they're going to have a hard time proving any facts in court."

We spoke to Jack Moore about the election several days ago. He did not tell us when and where he voted. Henrietta is one of only five towns in Monroe County where Democrats outnumber Republicans.
