Drazen Running For Binghamton Mayor

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Douglas Walter Drazen says he’s decided to make another bid to become mayor of Binghamton.

Drazen, an attorney who was a candidate for mayor in 2005 and 2009, says he’ll seek the Republican party nomination this year.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Drazen said he’ll be circulating petitions to collect the signatures needed to get on the ballot for a September primary.

Drazen said he plans to make the formal announcement of his candidacy on July 2.

Richard David and Edward Hickey have announced they are running for the Republican nomination for mayor.

Drazen said he would not run in the November general election if he’s not the Republican nominee. Hickey has said he plans to be on the ballot in November as a third-party candidate even if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination.

City council  president Teri Rennia is the only announced Democratic candidate.

Mayor Matthew Ryan, a Democrat, can’t seek a third term because of the city’s term-limit law.
