Esworthy Running For Johnson City Mayor

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Johnson City man is running as a Democratic candidate for village mayor.

37-year-old Barrett Esworthy is challenging Republican incumbent Greg Deemie.

Esworthy, who was born and raised in the village, graduated from Johnson City High School in 1993.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Esworthy said he and his wife recently returned to Johnson City after living outside the village.

Esworthy said he owns seven properties in Johnson City. His business, Esworthy Real Estate Management, is based in the village.

Esworthy said he expects taxes and shared services will be the top issues on the minds of Johnson City voters in November.

The candidate said Johnson City is “without a doubt the most troubled financially of all of Broome County’s municipalities.”

Esworthy said the village won’t be able to meet its “existing expenses” within the next five to ten years. He said the “revenue pool is going to run out” so action will have to be taken to address the fiscal problems.

Deemie was appointed mayor about 15 months ago after Republican Dennis Hannon quit. He was elected last November to fill the final year of Hannon’s term.
