Joe Morelle Stepping Down As Monroe County Democratic Chair
by News

Joe Morelle announced Tuesday he will not seek reelection as chairman of the Monroe County Democratic Committee.

He says he wants to focus on the 136th District and his role as Majority Leader of the Assembly.

Morelle called the decision bittersweet. He's been chairman for nine years, but said he leaves Democrats in a competitive place.

"There are a lot of really talented people, and so I have no doubt the party will remain in capable hands and as I said, we are in a stronger position than we were when I took over and that was always part of the goal is to leave things in a better place than you found them," said Morelle.

Morelle did not speculate on who he'd like or thinks will be nominated to the chair position. He will continue as Monroe County Democratic Chairman until September.
