Johnson City Mayor Deemie Seeking Re-Election
Greg Deemie says he wants to serve another term as the mayor of the village of Johnson City.
Deemie announced he was running for re-election during a radio appearance on Friday. He was appointed mayor in 2012 after Dennis Hannon resigned. He then was elected to fill the final year of Hannon's term. Deemie in 2013 easily defeated Democrat Barrett Esworthy for a full four-year term.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Deemie said the work he's done as mayor has helped to "put Johnson City back on the map."
Deemie, a Republican, said he hopes to keep the village moving forward and "moving in the right direction" if he is able to serve for another four years.
Johnson City Democratic committee chair Rob Egan said the party plans to run a full slate of candidates for mayor and village trustee seats in November. He said there were no announcements to make at this time.
