BINGHAMTON -- The man who bowed out of the race for Binghamton mayor is now back in.
Rich David is re-entering the race. David, a former deputy mayor under Rich Bucci, had removed himself from the race after making tax payments on his downtown business late. He says a steady stream of feedback since he dropped out of the race has encouraged him to get back in.
"There have been countless business owners across the city and outside the city, frankly, who have reached out to me. Complete strangers who have reached out to me to voice their support and to ask me to reconsider," he said.
David, a Republican, will make a formal announcement at Terra Cotta on State Street April 25th. The only announced candidate on the Democratic side is City Council President Terri Rennia.
