Fiala Announces Candidacy For State Senate

An important announcement is a game changer in the race for a now vacant local Senate seat. A candidate endorsed by Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided to run for the District 52 State Senate seat.

Former Broome County Executive and Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Barbara Fiala officially announced her candidacy for the vacant seat in the senate.

She kicked off her campaign for State Senate with an announcement at the American Legion Post 80 in Binghamton. Fiala is seeking the democratic nomination. Fiala was Broome County's first female County Executive, a position she held from 2005 until 2011. As for the new journey she is embarking on, Fiala says she is excited and will do whatever it takes to win.

Senate Nominee, Barbara Fiala said, "I think it's time we need a change, people know they wanted a change, and I bring a fresh approach to it and a unique resume."

Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo said, "From my point of view, I'm looking for a partner and the people in this district will send someone to Albany that I can work with would be very valuable to me."

Now, Fiala also said that if elected she is looking to focus on economic development in the 52nd district which other than Binghamton includes Deposit, Owego and Norwich.
