Henrietta Town Supervisor Switches to Democratic Party
Henriea Town Supervisor MichaelYudelson announced Friday he isswitching his party aliaon fromRepublican to Democrac.Announcing his decision, Yudelsoncited irreconcilable philosophicaldierences with local and naonalRepublicans. “Sadly, the RepublicanParty is allowing itself to be denedby extremists who put ideologyahead of governance and responsiblecizenship,” said Yudelson, who hasserved as Henriea supervisor for sixyears. “The shutdown of the federalgovernment and threatened naonaldefault are only the latest examplesof a party that has abandoned itsprinciples in the pursuit of a narrowpolical agenda.“The Tea Party fringe that now controlsthe Republicans agenda does notrepresent the party I once believedin and belonged to. My core beliefshaven’t changed, but theirs have.”Yudelson was nominated byRepublicans in Henriea for anotherterm as supervisor, but subsequentlylost the designaon in a primarywaged by Republican Town Councilmember Jack Moore.“Jack is backed by many of the sameelements who are making a spectaclein Washington,” Yudelson said.“Moderates are losing their voice inthe Republican Party, and as a resultthey are seeking it elsewhere. That’swhy I’m here today, and I want tothank Chairman Morelle and everyonewhose support has always been soinvaluable to me.“Though we’ve belonged to dierentpolical pares, Mike Yudelson and Ihave always worked together for thecommon good, and I always considerhim a friend. I am now pleased to callhim a fellow Democrat as well,” saidMonroe County Democrac Chair JoeMorelle.Morelle noted that he and Yudelsoncollaborated in a legislave eort topreserve the Henriea-based GeneseeValley Regional Market Authority in2010. “People of good will can ndcommon ground even on dicultissues, a concept essenal to ourdemocracy but one that unfortunatelyhas been abandoned by many in theRepublican Party,” Morelle said.“My party aliaon has changed, butmy commitment to my neighbors neverwill, and neither will my commitmentto scal conservasm and personalresponsibility. I look forward to avigorous campaign on behalf of thepeople of Henriea and connuing myservice to them next year.”Yudelson is also endorsed by theConservave and Independencepares. Friday was the deadline forocially changing party designaonprior to Elecon Day.
