Binghamton City Council Democratic Leader Dani Cronce is breaking from tradition in a big way.  The 3rd district representative is endorsing Republican Mayor Richard David for reelection.

Cronce says she believes the Democrat’s choice, Tarik Abdelazim, is a decent man and passionate but, she says, he has been on the wrong side of too many issues.

Cronce says she knows she is breaking with decades of tradition to support a mayor from a different party.
