Five members of Rochester City Council have released a report called the “Pact with the People.”

As reported by WXXI’s Randy Gorbman, the report calls for the council to be laser-focused on issues that include safer neighborhoods, quality housing and equitable access to opportunity. Council President Miguel Meléndez says the majority is inviting other councilmembers to be part of the discussions.

This hour, we’re joined by three members who signed the document.
