Republicans trying to force Dr. Mendoza out of Public Health Commissioner role

July 20, 2021

Monday, Monroe County Executive, Adam Bello, said Republicans in the Monroe County Legislature are currently trying to push the Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Michael Mendoza out of his position.

In his statement Monday, Bello said:

“Last week, under the guise of ethics reform, county legislature Republicans and their super majority partners in the Black and Asian Caucus submitted legislation that would effectively force Dr. Mendoza to vacate his position as public health commissioner. Not only that, their proposal would also outlaw the public disclosure of ethics violations, like those findings of sexual harassment like those found against current colleague and political ally, legislator Ernest Flagler-Mitchell.”
