Rochester, NY -- The Rochester City Council has named a familiar face to fill Mayor-Elect Lovely Warren's vacant council seat. The Council has unanimousy selected current County Legislator Michael Patterson to serve as the Northeast District Representative on the Council.
The choice comes after a three-week search in which the Council invited district residents to apply and approached the Monroe County Democratic Party for suggestions.
The Council is scheduled Tuesday to take a formal vote on Patterson's nomination.
An election will be held in November 2014 to determine who will serve out the remainder of the current term.
