ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — There is a new Monroe County Executive.
Democrat Adam Bello defeated Republican incumbent Cheryl Dinolfo in a very narrow contest.
He’ll be the second Democrat in the county’s history to hold the seat, the last one in 1991.
It was a close race — but in the end, the County Clerk edged out Republican incumbent Cheryl Dinolfo by just under 6,000 votes.
“First thing I want to do is bring people together and reach across the aisle and try to figure out how do we identify our common priorities, ” Bello said on Monday after his victory.
“I don’t think anyone disagrees that we want to build a strong economy here in Monroe County and that we want an economy that works for everybody regardless of who are, where you live that our children can have the same opportunity.”
Before winning the race for County Clerk, Adam Bello served as Irondequoit Town Supervisor.
