Primary voters in Monroe County head to the polls on Tuesday, June 27. One of the races they’ll see on the ballot is for Rochester City Council’s East District. This hour, we’re joined by the two candidates in that race: Mary Lupien and Paul Conrow. We sit down with them to discuss their platforms and priorities for office.

Our guests:

Mary Lupien, the avowed progressive City Council vice president, is facing a challenge from Paul Conrow, an East High teacher and self-described "jobs guy."

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
Megan Mack is the executive producer of "Connections with Evan Dawson" and live/televised engagement programming.
