(Binghamton, NY) The Broome County Republican Committee today announced that it is seeking candidates for the newly vacant 10th District seat on the County Legislature. The vacancy occurred with the recent resignation by Jerry Marinich, who accepted an appointment in County Executive Debbie Preston’s Administration.
As required by the County Charter and Code, the County Legislature will appoint a replacement who resides in the District and who is registered in the same political party as the previous Legislator. The 10th District encompasses all of the Town of Chenango and the Hillcrest area in the Town of Fenton (a full map of the District is available at http://www.bcgis.com/website/gisweb/maps/Legislature/LD10.pdf).
“We’re looking to fill this seat with a service-minded individual who wants to make a difference and give something back to our community,” said Broome County Republican Chairman Bijoy Datta, who also resides in the District. “We look forward to reviewing candidates to carry on the good work of the Republican Majority Caucus and County Executive Debbie Preston.”
“The Broome County Legislature needs people committed to revitalizing our local economy and who understand the importance of advocating for taxpayers,” said Broome County Legislative Chairman Dan J. Reynolds. “The district has been well represented for a number of years on the Legislature and I know we'll find a great advocate to continue that tradition. I look forward to working with the Chairman and other individuals in the district to find a quality candidate that will work hard for residents.”
Any registered Republican that resides in District 10 and is interested in being considered may send a cover letter and resume to Bijoy@BroomeRepublicans.com or: Bijoy Datta, Broome County Republican Committee, 59 Court Street, Room 707, Binghamton, NY 13901.
