City Clerk releases unofficial results of Municipal Election, Mayor Callaghan wins second term

On Tuesday, November 7th, Rochester residents had the opportunity to vote for the positions of Mayor, City Council, School Board, Police Commission, and Election Officials.

Incumbent Mayor Paul Callaghan won a second term, earning 2,916 votes over challenger Susan Rice with 926 votes.

Starting in January, Callaghan will lead a City Council consisting of mostly new members. Among the current 13 members, 8 decided not to seek reelection, ensuring a wave of new faces to occupy Council Chambers.

According to an election night interview given to Foster’s Daily Democrat, Callaghan stated, “I’m humbled to have earned the support and confidence of my neighbors in Rochester as we continue the important work of making our city an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”

“It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to continue to give back to the community that has given me so much,” Callaghan said. “I look forward to working with residents across the city to keep Rochester moving forward.”
