About Carrie

Monroe County Legislator Carrie Andrews represents the 21st District, which includes parts of Northeast Rochester. Carrie was elected to represent the 21st district for a four year term in 2005. In October 2007 she was elected Assistant Minority Leader of the Legislature. She currently serves on the Ways and Means Committee along with the Human Services Committee.

Carrie brings a deep concern for educational and social justice to the Monroe County Legislature.

She is an active member of the social justice group, Metro Justice, and a member of the Monroe County Fishery Advisory Board and the Monroe County Soil and Water Conservation Board.

Professionally, Carrie is focused on education. As a Labor Relations Specialist with New York State United Teachers, Carrie fights for educators throughout Upstate New York. Carrie Andrews live on Roseview Avenue in the City of Rochester.

Carrie Andrews will fight for quality jobs, for healthy neighborhoods, and to get our fair share of government resources.

For the past four years as your Monroe County Legislator, Carrie Andrews has fought against corruption and closed-door politics. She has worked to make county finances more transparent and accountable to the taxpayer and opposed a plan that would have balanced the county budget on the backs of our school children. More than ever, we need to return Carrie Andrews to the County Legislature.
