Plattsburgh Mayor Plans To Run For Reelection

May 31, 2019

Plattsburgh Mayor Colin Read will run for a second four-year term in 2020.

The Democrat has not officially held a campaign rally or announcement but has revealed his intentions to run for another term. Read says he needs a few more years to firm up the city’s fiscal foundation.  “I’ve always maintained that I’ll continue to do this until I’m very confident the city’s got a good strong structural fiscal balance.”

Read has been criticized for attempting to annex adjacent town land and has also come under fire for downtown redevelopment plans.   “Obviously that means I take a great deal of hits from people.”

No other candidates have announced mayoral campaigns at this time.
