John Cordisco has announced he plans to run as a Republican candidate to represent the Fourth District.

Cordisco operates a convenience store on Chenango Street on Binghamton's North Side.

Cordisco was a Democrat when he served on council several years ago.

Conrad Taylor, a Binghamton University student, last month announced he would seek the Fourth District council seat as a Democratic candidate.

The district currently is represented by Democrat Lea Webb.
