I am running for mayor to get my hometown back on top, not to get a job, or higher office. My goal is to establish Binghamton's reputation as the safest and cleanest city in upstate New York.
True long term commitment to our city, and proven political independence is needed to lead that effort.
I live minutes from where I was born and from where my great-great grandparents rest. For nearly 20 years I've publicly offered ideas to improve our city, not just when it's election time. I'm my own man, not just another front man, or yes man. I am owned by no one.
I tell people what they need to know, not only what they want to hear. I can tell you for sure, when I am mayor, those paying the freight will come first. That hasn't happened around here in a long time, and that has to change.
