Rich David going into more detail Monday about his decision to not pursue the vacant 52nd District Senate seat.
David said he received a lot of encouragement to run but decided to pursue the agenda he has laid out as Mayor. However, David did mention a name he felt would be a strong contender for the Republican nomination for State Senate.
"The name that I hear most frequently right now is former Binghamton Mayor Rich Bucci. and I think he would be an outstanding candidate, but other than that I've not heard anything for sure about any of the other individuals," said David.
Rich David served as Rich Bucci's Deputy Mayor during Bucci's term at City Hall.
