ROCHESTER – CSEA has endorsed incumbent Monroe County Legislator Joseph Morelle, Jr. (District 17, Irondequoit) in the general election slated for November 5.
”Joseph Morelle, Jr. is a rising star for working families in Monroe County. Since taking office in January of 2013, he has already skillfully crafted a great working relationship with the public sector and private sector trade unions as well as the local business community,” said CSEA Monroe County Local Political Action Committee Chairman Ove Overmyer. “Mr. Morelle has clearly demonstrated a vision and ability to work across the aisle and get things done. We look forward to working with him on many tough challenges facing the residents and members who live in the Town of Irondequoit and Monroe County. CSEA wholeheartedly supports the campaign of Joseph D. Morelle, Jr. for Monroe County Legislature, 17th District."
Morelle acknowledges the role that working families make to create a great quality of life here in Monroe County. He credits public employees and CSEA for helping build strong communities.
“I want to thank the hard-working members of CSEA for the endorsement,” said Morelle. He added, “I am honored and humbled by the support and look forward to continuing to work with CSEA on behalf of county residents.”
