A day after Monroe County Democrats revealed their slate of candidates for Irondequoit town and county representation, Republicans presented the candidates they endorsed.

Current town supervisor Mary Joyce D'Aurizio is seeking re-election. She responded to Democratic claims from Saturday about what they called lack of significant progress for the town in her tenure.

"We've had three and a half years of success," said D'Aurizio. "We overcome the fiscal stress of the town. We've built fund balances. We are moving ahead with economic development with great projects going on around town. And I think I it's important to be captain of this ship for the next two years."

Ed McClenathan is running for Monroe County's 17th district. Democrat Joe Morelle Junior was appointed to fill the seat by county Democratic leader Joe Morelle and is running for a full term.

"A lot of politics is name recognition," said McClenathan. "I think if you get past what the names are and look and see what happens next when one of us is elected, I think this is a pretty easy choice."

Also running is candidate Bill Brongo for a seat on Town Board as well as incumbent town board member Paul Marasco.
