Unofficial results show Green Party candidate Alex White finished third with 9% of the vote in the special election for Mayor of Rochester NY. White, a small business owner, ran a spirited campaign that was based on strong ideas.
From the Democrat & Chronicle:
White, 47, took pride in garnering more than 2,000 votes, saying it was about as he expected and it “gives us something to build on.” The political newcomer ran on the Green Party line. David Atias, White’s campaign manager, rejected any notion that the candidate had played the role of a spoiler.
“These were Alex’s votes. He worked hard to get them. If anything, they were taking (votes) away from him,” Atias said.
