Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks said she was surprised to learn that District Attorney Mike Green would not be re-nominated for a federal judgeship.
Brooks said Green would have been a good fit for the position, but added that she does not believe his claim that local Republicans somehow interfered with his nomination process.
"I think to suggest that any local Republican has more clout in Washington than Chuck Schumer or the president himself is a little bit laughable. I mean, I'm not sure any local Republicans would have that kind of clout. There were many of us who supported Mike and I'm sorry it didn't work out for him," said Brooks.
Green did not run for re-election during the nomination process. His last day as District Attorney is December 31st.
