NO. I don't think so.
He lived in the Burbs and worked for a town, and now he wants to run the city???
We, the City, need and want a person from the city, that lives in the city, and loves the city, not someone just looking for a job or a higher public position, we already had one of those.

Rich and Creamy, You obviously don't know anything about Mitch to make that comment, he was born, raised, lived and worked in and for the City from the time he was 16, up until he went to work for the Town of Irondequoit a couple years ago. He chose to leave the City after 25 plus years, which was no easy decision to make, his entire adult life and career have been all about this City. Check your facts sir.

Virgil I Grissom for Elementary School, he graduated High School in 1980 from Gates Chili where his father lived, and his mother was a resident of Magee Avenue in Maplewood for over 40 years. He owned his first home on Meriden St in Charlotte, then on to Harding Road off Lake Avenue, and Seneca Parkway in Maplewood.

Maybe you should do a little research before making comments where you clearly don't have the correct information.

So how come he have spent his entire life in the City, if not only did he work for the Town of Irondiquiot, but he went to school in the burbs and never in the city???
Were the City school's not good enough for him??
And did he live with his mother in the city, while he was going to school in the burbs??, isn't that illegal??
And those addresses you gave of the mother, is close to where DUffy was raised, and back then it was a nice all white neighborhood. So, maybe you should do some research before you make a comment.

How is this, if he didn't go to city school's???

Didn't the Greece police arrest a black woman who lived in the city but sent her kid to a Greece school????
Why wasn't Mitch's mom arrested????

I also think it's funny how people use their parents jobs and/or accomplishments on their resume, as if they had something to do with it.
His mom worked for the city, therefore he deserves to get the job. This is like how many cops get hired, like Rahn's kids, and the Joesph family.

I think you are way off base here, and clearly have no idea who or what you talk about. Mitch attended #7 school on Dewey Avenue while he lived on Magee Avenue with his mother and father. If you must know, Mitch's parents got divorced in the late 70's, and Mitch and his brother went live with their Father in Gates where he attended high school. After graduating High School, Mitch bought his first home on Meridan St in Charlotte and lived in the City nearly all of his adult live, until he accepted a job in Irondequoit.
I have to honestly say that you are clearly just looking for something to argue with someone about, as I have seen and read many of your comments on other posts on this site, and I will not engage you in your absurdities. You did not even clearly read or understand what I wrote the first time, let alone the 2nd or 3rd. Have a nice day!

Funny how you once again misrepresent things, the article was written by a reporter, not Mitch himself.

You are almost comical....

Funny how you say I misrepresent things, when you are acting as if he lived in Rochester all his life, when he has not, and that he only went to City School's, when he has NOT, and that he has only worked for the City, when he worked for at least one other town.
Why doesn't he go run the the Town Supervisor Position for the Town of Gates or Irondequoit??

You say he moved back into the City, but City record don't show him owning any City property???

But I do see that many politicians use the same address on Seneca Parkway, even tho the house is NOT owned by them. Do they rent the house and all their families all live in it all together???
or, do they not even live in the City of Rochester???

You must be young then. Cause I can assure you that 30 or 40 years ago, NO blacks lived on Seneca Pkwy or went to school number 7 or Aquinas. Just ask Bob Duffy or Rachel Barnhart, they will tell you.
Barnhart's mom would even vote for Obama.
