Henrietta Town Supervisor leaves GOP
Henrietta, N.Y.-- Henrietta Town Supervisor Michael Yudelson switched his party affiliation from Republican to Democratic.
Sadly, the Republican Party is allowing itself to be defined by extremists who put ideology ahead of governance and responsible citizenship, said Yudelson, in a statement, The shutdown of the federal government and threatened national default are only the latest examples of a party that has abandoned its principles in the pursuit of a narrow political agenda.
He adds that this will not mean a change in platform.
Yudelson has served as Henrietta supervisor for six years.
Though weve belonged to different political parties, Mike Yudelson and I have always worked together for the common good, and I always consider him a friend. I am now pleased to call him a fellow Democrat as well, added Monroe County Democratic Chair Joe Morelle in a statement.
Today is the deadline for officially changing party designation prior to Election Day. Yudelson will remain on the conservative and independent lines on the upcoming ballot.
