In “Breaking Down Barriers and Building Bridges: Confronting Issues Facing the City of Rochester,” McFadden will discuss a number of issues including urban plight, poor schools, blighted communities and violence within the city of Rochester. He will inform attendees about some of the areas he has been involved in and how he has confronted some of the persistent, pervasive urban decay, as well as what he feels are the biggest areas of need in the city and the potential solutions.
