Tools for investigating local election and finance data in Monroe County, NY

Searching the monroe taxes database is prolly not a good idea. Querying the geo db might be better:

http://geo.cityofrochester.gov/defmenu.asp?qrytype=ownername

But some residential buildings are owned by LLCs. PITA! Luckily, LLCs have to register and can be searched here:

So if we build three tables:

  • donors
  • owners of real estate
  • owners of businesses

Then we can collapse the third into the first two; meaning, rewrite the first two with knowledge of the third. Then, look for simple corrolations between the first two rewritten sets.
