Binghamton, NY – Republican Rich David took the oath and was sworn in as the Mayor of Binghamton.
“I’m very excited and I’m very eager. I mean this is really is kind of the last but most important part of the campaign process being sworn in. Tomorrow I can actually go to work and we can start making decisions and moving in a new direction,” David said.
Succeeding Matt Ryan, Democrat, David is Binghamton’s first new mayor since 2006.
Getting right to work, David says he is ready to fulfill his campaign promises and make Binghamton a safer place. In light of the recent increase in criminal activity, “This city will not be a great city until we are a safe city,” David said, “I’m very concerned by the recent reductions and I’m going to gradually move forward through the ranks and have a full court press on crime.”
David is currently collecting applications for appointed positions. In the next couple months, David hopes to have all appointments filled. To apply visit Rich David’s website.
