Meet Rochester's City Councilmembers

About Us

City Council is comprised of five at-large members who represent the entire city and four district members who are the voice for the South, Northwest, East, and Northeast sections of the city.  All Councilmembers serve a four year term in office.  The At-Large Councilmembers are elected in the same year as the Mayor, and all District Councilmembers are elected two years later.  Please click here to view a Rochester City Council Districts Map.  If you have additional questions regarding the election process, please click here for the Monroe County Board of Elections.
