The Race for Broome County Sheriff Heats Up
Long-time Broome County Sheriff David Harder has a challenger for what he has said would be his last term, if he wins re-election.
42 year old Binghamton Police Captain Chris Bracco of Endicott is expected to formally announce he is running for sheriff later this week.
Republican Harder is 72 and is seeking a fifth term. He’s been sheriff since 1998.
Bracco is a registered Republican but is looking to run as a Democrat.
He submitted a change of enrollment in March, but the switch would not be effective until after the election in November.
