    Dedicated. Caring. Committed.
    IUE-CWA 81381, AFL-CIO

The Federation of Social Workers is appalled at the attempts by the current Republican County Legislators and County Executive Dinolfo, to diminish the powers of County Executive-elect, Adam Bello. Their actions are an affront to democracy and show an arrogant disregard for the will of the voters of Monroe County. We urge our members and our supporters to express their outrage directly to those legislators and the County Executive.

Monroe County just introduced legislation to stifle County Executive-elect Adam Bello. Here are 4 things we can do today to help stop this abuse of power:

  • Call the County Executive Office and ask her not to sign this law. Let them know “the will of the people and not the will of power should be heard”. (585) 753-1000
  • Call the Office of the Republican Majority. Let them know that you feel that they are going against the will of the people and they should vote no. (585) 753-1922
  • Share on social media, write letters to the editor, talk with your friends, neighbors, and family about this.
  • The County Legislator hearing is on 12/10. Pack the room, the halls, the buildings, and street! Let them know that we see them suppressing our will, our votes, our voices, and our democracy!
