ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — This week on Rochester In Focus we look at one of the most talked-about races in the upcoming primary, the Rochester Mayoral race.
We sit down with Rochester City Council member Malik Evans, who’s looking to unseat the incumbent and two-term Mayor Lovely Warren.
The two both recently went head to head in a debate.
Did you know Evans wanted to be a broadcast journalist? In this segment, we learn about him personally and where he stands on issues. Some people say he should be pointing out the Mayor’s weaknesses and missteps. He tells us why his approach is different.
Check out part one, as Evans talks about how he grew up in Rochester.
Check out part two, as Evans discusses topics like his political donors to comments Mayor Warren made when he announced his candidacy.
Check out part three as Evans talks about what it takes to strengthen the local Democratic party, as well as touching on his plan to address gun violence in the city.
Check out part four as Evans talks about his "greatest accomplishment" from his time on the Rochester City School District Board, as well as what he didn't accomplish, but hopes to achieve as Mayor.
We have reached out to Mayor Warren's campaign to see if she would like to be a guest on Rochester In Focus next week, we are still waiting to hear back.
