WATCH: Elaine Spaull on what's next after City Council

Feb 18, 2019

For twelve years, Elaine Spaull has been a fixture on the Rochester City Council. But it was last month when the political leader announced it was time to hang up her political hat and refocus her energy on a different kind of public service. Spaull is also the Executive Director of The Center For Youth. Her decision to not seek re-election is due to an intense desire to support the needs of young parents facing homelessness at a time when agencies supporting area youth are either closing programs or facing financial hardship. Elaine Spaull joins this edition of Need to Know discuss the critical needs for youth in the community and why time is of the essence to get those needs met.
