ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Local businessman, developer, and philanthropist Howard Konar is this week's Sunday profile on Rochester in Focus.

He's the founder of the non-profit Common Ground. They recently held a new type of town hall in Rochester — a citizen panel — in an effort to get people to get past partisan politics.


They did a survey with nearly 1,000 local voters and found a majority of Republicans and Democrats actually agree on a variety of solutions to the hot button issue of immigration. They invited them to get together to go over the results with Congressman Joe Morelle.     

You can see and take the survey here.
