Broome County Executive Preston Not Running For 52nd District

Posted:
Broome County Executive Debbie Preston will not run for the 52nd state senate seat, afterall.

Preston sent a statement Tuesday morning putting an end to days of speculation.

“While I am flattered and intrigued about helping the people of the 52nd District, I will not seek the Republican nomination. My main focus continues to be the people of Broome County."

Preston is being treated for lung cancer, which was diagnosed in April 2014.

"I’ve been through a lot during my time as County Executive and the support I’ve gotten from the people during that time shows me that there’s no place like home and I want to continue the work I’ve started for the people here.”

Broome County GOP Chairman is updating media at 11:00 about the republican selection process for his party's nomination.

Preston is expected to talk more about her announcement at an 11:30 press conference about this year's Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally.
