Mayor Candidates Turn In Petitions
7/11/2013 (Updated 11:18:21 PM)Republican mayoral candidate Rich David is now officially in the Binghamton race for mayor. He handed in his petitions Thursday.
He turned in 1023 signatures, more than 300 of which he says he collected himself.
Rich David is also running on the Conservative Party line:
"It was a very rewarding process going door-to-door, talking to residents about issues they're concerned about, but also listening to the many concerns residents have," said David.
David says residents have concerns with crime rates, street conditions, and taxes.
And Republican mayoral candidate Douglas Drazen also turned in his petitions Thursday.
Drazen is running on the Republican ticket this year after running twice as an Independent, and losing.
He says that voters are very reluctant to vote for third party candidates.
Drazen says he personally collected more signatures than did either of his opponents, Ed Hickey and Rich David:
"I personally gathered 509 signatures which exceeds the number submitted by my opponents, as I expected. What I think it demonstrates is that I have a superior campaign work ethic and I intend to take that work ethic into city hall and make it work for regular people again," said Drazen.
Teri Rennia also turned in more than 800 signatures to run on the Democratic line this fall.
