Irondequoit Town Supervisor-Elect Discusses Future

Adam Bello talks about his plans for Irondequoit.

So there are going to be seven other buildings going up this one is going in the spring," said Adam Bello, (D) Irondequoit Town Supervisor-elect.

That's the new retail, housing, and green space under development on Titus Avenue.

As the supervisor-elect, he says this is the re-development Irondequoit taxpayers will notice during his tenure.

"This is a shining example where if we work together with developers and craft deals that protect taxpayer so we are not on the line and not on the hook for developers not fulfilling promises," said Bello.

He's talking about the black cloud that's hovered over the town for years – the Medley Centre.

Developer Scott Congel has repeatedly missed tax payments and deadlines.

Bello said enough is enough.

"If there is a benchmark and agreement in place we are going to enforce those agreements," said Bello.

Once in office he plans to organize a legal team to tackle the Medley project.

Bello said he will meet with his former opponent, current Irondequoit Town Supervisor Mary Joyce D'Aurizio, to work out a transition plan.

Even before taking over, he plans to campaign for the new library.

It goes to a vote in December.

"We are going to work to make sure that passes,” said Bello.

Bello is a life long town resident.

"It's truly an honor to do this and I take that trust to heart and I am going to work very hard to make sure we are successful," said Bello.

As a matter of disclosure, the I-Square developer did donate to Bello's political campaign.

Bello will take office in January.
