This week’s Syracuse Common Council Meeting marked the last for second district councilor Pat Hogan. He’s represented parts of the city’s north and west sides for eight years, and term limits kept him from running again. But Hogan DID run for mayor, ultimately conceding he couldn’t win against a well-funded, party backed incumbent.
Pat Hogan’s final term representing the Syracuse Common Council’s Second District ends December 31st. He’ll be succeeded by Chad Ryan.
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:
Mayor Stephanie Miner and Democratic Mayoral candidate Pat Hogan gathered with their respective campaign advisors and supporters as the primary results came in.
Hogan's fell behind in the race against incumbent Mayor Miner. In his speech after his defeat, he pointed out that only half the Democrats who voted in the primary support Miner, and acknowledged Alfonso Davis's efforts leading up to the primary election.
As Tuesday's Democratic Primary looms, the campaigns of three candidates for the Syracuse Mayoral Race were busy trying to get their word out today. In addition to fulfilling his duties as City Councilor, Pat Hogan planned on attending a rally today on a key campaign topic.
“Syracuse Firefighters have a rally at station house seven which was closed by the mayor and then there will be a kick-off rally basically to try and take back the city and put the city in a new direction starting tomorrow.”
