Black Pastors Call Out Monroe County Executive Adam Bello

November 23, 2022

Yesterday, a group of Black pastors in Rochester came together for a press conference to call out Monroe County Executive Adam Bello for policies that are bad for the Black Community. The three main points they made were Bello’s recent veto of five Black majority county legislative districts, the decision to appoint Julia Cianca as public defender over the Black candidate, Buffalo attorney Robert Fogg, and concerns that federal money from the American Relief Plan Act (ARPA) won’t be distributed equitably.

Rev. Myra Brown, a pastor at Spiritus Christi Church, stated: “These patterns of anti-Blackness, and racial undertones in decision-making, harm the future of Black people. [It] leaves the Black community vulnerable, leaves our voices muted, and leaves our community struggling.”
