Race for Monroe County Executive: Sandra Frankel

Local News
Even though Sandra Frankel was Brighton’s town supervisor for 2 decades, she still remembers well that first year.

“I inherited a financial mess, which we solved and we went on to do great things in Brighton and made it a very strong community,” Frankel said.
From that comes her promise to bring fiscal strength to the county as Monroe County executive.
“There’s been a litany of corruption, of crime, of abuses, and coupled with that, mismanagement, which tells me there are opportunities to reduce the cost of government,” Frankel said.
Frankel says her fixes will allow her to keep the property tax rate flat and bolster programs that fight poverty.
“People who need child care, social services, there are many aspects of county government that are not working very effectively,” she said.
That drive to help the needy, she says, comes from her childhood.
Frankel grew up in Florida and Louisiana when both states were segregated.
“Seeing the terrible impact of those policies built into me a lifelong desire to work for equality, for freedom, to end discrimination and racism in our communities, in our country and that instilled in me a passion for public service which I’ve carried forward throughout my life,” Frankel said.
In her adult life, Frankel has raised 3 children and now has 9 grandchildren. While she has been a supervisor for 2 decades, she has been a wife for 5.
