Connections: What should Democrats learn from the recent primary election results?

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

What should Democrats learn from the recent election results? In Rochester, activists became candidates, and they won seats on City Council. They used the refrain, "From the streets to the seats." But in New York City, Democrats chose a former police officer, and the most unabashedly opposed to stronger police reforms, for their next mayor.

Our guests discuss it:

  • James Patterson, former law enforcement officer and winner of the Democratic primary for Rochester City School Board
  • Kim Smith, winner of the Democratic primary for Rochester City Council
  • Bill Johnson, former mayor of the City of Rochester
  • Rachel Barnhart, Monroe County Legislator
