Rochester, NY– Adding to its slate of endorsements for Monroe County Legislature, Citizen Action announced its endorsement of Susan Hughes-Smith in District 14. Sue is running to fight for environmental justice, and to ensure Monroe County residents see deep investments in health care, housing and education. 

I am thrilled to have the endorsement of Citizen Action because, like me, they look for opportunities to accomplish big changes – not small, incremental reforms,” said Sue Hughes-Smith, candidate for Monroe County Legislature in District 14.

“Sue understands what our community needs right now as we recover from the impacts of Covid-19 and work to address racial inequality here in Monroe County. She’s committed to fighting for much-needed resources like access to mental health care and affordable housing, and creating educational and economic opportunities that will benefit the many, not the few. We’re proud to endorse Sue because we know she will fight for transformational change,” said Mercedes Phelan, lead organizer of Citizen Action’s Rochester chapter.

The chapter has announced endorsements for Rochester City Council, Rochester School Board and Monroe County Legislature. 

A grassroots organization with eight regional chapters and over 30,000 members across New York State, Citizen Action of New York works on issues important to our communities, including fair elections, equitable school funding, housing for all, environmental justice, and ending mass incarceration.
