The petitions are in, and it looks like the City of Rochester will have Democratic primaries for mayor, City Council, and school board. The Town of Henrietta will see a Republican primary for the supervisor's office between incumbent Michael Yudelson and current Town Board member Jack Moore. | Yudelson also has the Independence and Conservative lines. | As expected, Rochester City Council President Lovely Warren has filed petitions to challenge incumbent Mayor Tom Richards in a Democratic primary. Richards also has the Working Families and Independence lines. | Green Party candidate Alex White has filed petitions to run for mayor in November. He won't have to run in a primary. | Nine Democrats filed to run for five City Council seats, and 10 Democrats filed to run for three seats on the Rochester school board. | The Green Party has filed to run candidates for City Council, school board, and sheriff. | Not all of the races are set, because a couple of petitions are being challenged — a common tactic in elections.
