CSEA has endorsed James Sheppard’s candidacy for Mayor of the City of Rochester. The CSEA Monroe County Political Action Committee is comprised of local members who work for state government, public authorities, local municipalities, school districts, library systems and for the private sector childcare and healthcare industries. More than 4,500 CSEA members call the City of Rochester home.
“For many years, James Sheppard and CSEA have been crafting a great working relationship when it comes to delivering vital public services to citizen taxpayers of Rochester and Monroe County,” said CSEA Monroe County Local Political Action Committee Chairperson Bess Watts. In an endorsement letter dated August 17, Watts stated Mr. Sheppard has clearly demonstrated a vision and ability to build consensus on issues that matter most to our working families.
“James Sheppard completely understands the value of collective bargaining and the vital role employees play in improving the lives of local residents,” said Western Region President Florence Tripi. She added, “The City of Rochester is lucky to have a trustworthy passionate leader like Jim Sheppard. His unequivocal confirmation not supporting the state constitutional convention referendum vote this November is something that did not go unnoticed.”
