December 5, 2019
State Assemblywoman Jamie Romeo has announced her intention to run for Monroe County Clerk in 2020.
Romeo announced her bid in an email to the Monroe County Democratic Committee, a copy of which was obtained by the Democrat and Chronicle Thursday.
"I am excited to confirm that I will be seeking the nomination for Monroe County Clerk in the 2020 cycle. With a strong partnership with the incoming Bello Administration, I believe the clerk’s office must be a key component to seeing the transformational change our community has demanded at 39 West Main Street."
She later confirmed the announcement in a text message.
Romeo, 34, a Democrat from Irondequoit, is a first-term Assemblywoman for the 136th District. In the email she stated she wouldn't seek re-election for that seat. She replaced Joseph Morelle, who left the seat to run for Congress. Morelle currently represents New York's 25th Congressional District. Read more HERE.
