Current Rochester City Council President and Rochester mayoral candidate Lovely Warren will be endorsed Friday by the Rochester Labor Council and Rochester Building Trades Councils.
"Labor is looking forward, as key constituents of the economic justice base in city, to uniting with Lovely Warren to move forward with improving the economic opportunities for our entire community", said Jim Bertolone, President of the Rochester Labor Council and the American Postal Workers Union Local 215.
Current mayor, Tom Richards, ended his campaign for re-election one week after his loss in the democratic primary to Warren. Warren will now face Alex White of the Green Party in November.
