Adam McFadden says he won’t run for re-election to his seat on the Rochester City Council following his arrest on federal charges.
McFadden is accused of getting money from the Rochester Housing Authority through a scheme involving a partner agency and an outside consultant. In total, McFadden is accused of improperly receiving more than $65,000.
McFadden has served on the city council since 2003 and is the council’s longest-serving member. Last year, McFadden also mounted a run for Congress, but ultimately was defeated in the primary.
McFadden and Rochester Housing Authority chairman George Moses are both charged with wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy in the scheme. They are expected to be back in court Tuesday morning on those charges.
