David Now Running For Binghamton Mayor

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Six weeks after saying he would not be a candidate for mayor of Binghamton, Richard David Monday said he’s changed his mind.

David plans to make a formal announcement on April 25 at Terra Cotta Catering on State Street.

David had cited past late tax payments in his February decision to scrap a planned campaign for the Republican nomination for mayor. He said he didn’t want the tax matter to become a distraction from city issues during a mayoral race.

David told WNBF News he was surprised by the support he received from city residents and business owners after he announced his decision not to run.

He said he never expected the number of calls from people asking him to reconsider. David said some people told him they could relate to him because of the challenges he’d faced in making tax payments.

David said he reached his decision to run over the weekend.

David plans to take a leave of absence from his job as Broome Community College public affairs officer after graduation next month.

Binghamton city council president Teri Rennia last month announced she was running as a Democratic candidate for mayor.
