Both candidates for Rochester City Mayor made progress in their race for office.
Current City Council President Lovely Warren delivered petition signatures from Rochester voters to the Board of Education Thursday. Warren says through volunteer efforts, she was able to collect more than 6,200 signatures of registered democrats who say they'll support her in her run for mayor.
Campaign officials claim that's twice what the current mayor was able to collect and a new record for a city-wide office campaign.
Lovely Warren, Candidate for Mayor, said, “I am excited because this is a home-grown campaign. This is a campaign about the people, for the people, and the fact that over 6,200 people have signed our petition, it shows that people want change.”
Warren says her volunteers visited all four quadrants of the city in gathering these signatures. She's confident the signatures of supporters will translate to vote come September.
