The Onondaga County Republican Party conceded it won’t have a candidate for Syracuse Mayor in November. Chairman Tom Dadey called a press conference to end speculation whether or not a candidate would emerge. Dadey compared politics to baseball, and promises there will always be another season of politics.
Pat Hogan has decided to end his run for Syracuse Mayor. The move comes less than a week after he took second place in a three-way democratic primary against incumbent Stephanie Miner and Alfonso Davis.
Hogan's decision also means he won't be running on the Republican ticket. Here's the statement he released today:
Native craft-makers gathered at the Onondaga Nation Arena over the weekend to sell their work and raise money for the Onondaga Nation Education Group. The effort raises funds to support Native Students attending college in the Syracuse area, and it attracted vendors from across New York State for the event.
