Joe Robach, Standing Up for Rochester’s Communities and Arts

Senator Joe Robach, throughout his career as a New York State legislator, has supported the many wonderful cultural attractions, museums, festivals and artistic events that Rochester and Monroe County has to offer both residents and visitors. The benefits of arts to the community are clear, revitalizing neighborhoods, bettering quality of life and increasing tourism to our great city. Joe Robach knows every dollar invested in Rochester’s arts will go a long way in renewing our economy by promoting tourism and highlighting the wonderful qualities that our city has to offer. Joe Robach has always been proud of our community’s local artists and art enthusiasts who have worked so hard to preserve and add to the cultural assets of our community. Joe Robach looks forward to continuing his work with groups to make Rochester and Monroe County an even better place to live and enjoy the arts. In the past, Joe Robach has supported many local groups, such as ARTwalk of Rochester, Friends of School of the Arts, the George Eastman House, Garth Fagan Dance, Hochstein School of Music, Museum of Kids Art, Little Theatre Film Society, the Susan B. Anthony House, Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester Children’s Theatre, and the Rochester Community Theatre.
In addition to supporting the arts, Senator Robach has made it a priority to secure funds and create initiatives to help improve local neighborhoods. For any neighborhood to be successful, a partnership between residents and local leaders is required. Many of the ideas that Joe Robach has pushed for in the State Senate were suggestions of the residents in Rochester’s neighborhoods. For example in the South Wedge, suggestions included securing funds to make improvements to the field at Marie Daley Park, funding Phase II of development of landscaped piazza at Nathanial Square and funding renovations and upgrades to the technology of the South Wedge Planning Committee.
