David Montenegro changed his name to human in 2012. He made headlines this year when the state’s highest court ruled he could have a vanity license plate that reads COPSLIE. He had sued after the Division of Motor Vehicles said he couldn’t have the plate because it denigrated police officers.

Rogers was first elected in 2012 and represents Rochester, a city of about 30,000 residents.
