After receiving unanimous support at the Designating Convention of the Monroe County Democratic Committee, Terry Daniele is campaigning to represent Legislative District 5 which includes Mendon, Rush, and portions of Henrietta and Pittsford.
A lifelong resident of Monroe County, Terry and her husband Tony Daniele live in Mendon. She has two adult children. She has a private practice as an American Sign Language Interpreter. She writes a monthly article regarding women in politics for Rochester Women’s Magazine and she has owned and operated small businesses. She previously worked for BOCES2 in a supervisory capacity. She is an executive committee member for a scholarship given in honor of social justice annually to two graduating Honeoye Falls students. She is a member of the Mendon Democrats and has been involved in the campaigns of many other Democratic candidates.
“It is imperative we work together as a legislature to move Monroe County forward to address the issues we face here. Social justice, education, clean energy, supporting small businesses, affordable housing, keeping our young adults here are all issues I want to address. My hope is to work with our County Executive Adam Bello and the legislature to make county government work for all of us,” Daniele said.
Kelly Breuer, Publisher of Rochester Woman Online Magazine, stated “I first met Terry when she reached out to me to start writing a column for Rochester Woman Online magazine that would have a political twist to it. That was almost 2 years ago now and she has done an incredible job with not only the column but highlighting incredible people within the community. Especially now, during a global pandemic, with tensions high, we need a leader to guide us through. I believe whole-heartedly that Terry is that person. She is a woman of great character with a record of inspiring leadership and love for her community that speaks for itself. As a very proud West Irondequoit resident, business owner, and parent of a child in the district, I could not think of a better person that I would want fighting for us than Terry.”
Jeannette Aikens, owner of Kenrick Corporation added “Through hard work and determination, Terry has overcome the challenges of poverty in her childhood & has gained much success in her life. A career of being a business owner and then a sign language interpreter to support the deaf community are career paths where she has used her talents to serve & support the needs of others in our community. The resilience that Terry has gained from her life experience, coupled with her passion to improve the lives of others will be beneficial in the position of county legislator. Terry will listen to your needs and make a difference.”
Daniele’s Republican opponent is Honeoye Falls Mayor Rick Milne. Daniele and Milne are running to replace current legislator Karla Boyce, who has hit the term limit of 10 years.
