Rochester, NY, October 28, 2019 - The Rochester Airport Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 1636 announces its support of Paul Dondorfer for Monroe County Legislature - 9th District. This marks the twelfth Legislature candidate the Association has chosen to support in this year’s election.
This was our most difficult decision as the 9th LD is one of too few races featuring a pair of strong candidates. This is demonstrated by the split in support from organized labor. Ultimately, Mr. Dondorfer’s extensive public safety background provided the edge in our decision.
Local 1636 President Paul Miller stated, “After years of deteriorating relations between County government and this community’s public safety professionals, we feel it’s time our members had an advocate on both sides of the aisle. We believe Paul Dondorfer will be the voice of reason in a room that has largely ignored the concerns of not just Airport Firefighters, but also those of Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies.”
