Green Party member Alex White has announced that he is running for mayor of Rochester.

His goals are to take care of the thousands of vacant homes in the city, improve the graduation rate and curb the violence. White also ran for mayor in the special election in 2011. He says there is much to do to improve the city.

"I hope to bring a change to City Hall. It's time to invest in the people of Rochester to truly grow our community. It's time to start on a new future because there is so much to do," White said.

White will face off against current city mayor Tom Richards in the November election. City Council President Lovely Warren is considering a run for mayor as well.
