Rich David Sworn-In

Rich David was sworn-in at City Council Chambers on Wednesday afternoon by Broome County Judge Joe Cawley.
Now to the swearing-in ceremonies. There were a lot of them around Greater Binghamton. The biggest was Binghamton Mayor-elect Rich David taking the oath of office. Broome County Judge Joe Cawley swore him in at City Council Chambers Wednesday afternoon. It was standing room only as David, a Republican, became Binghamton's 50th mayor. David says he's been working as much as he can from outside of City Hall since the election, but he says he's excited to finally take over the reins. One of his first priorities is filling three new positions in the police department and working with the force to fight crime.
 
Rich David says, "The police department needs more resources to effectively deal with crime. This city will not be a great city until we are a safe city. That's got to be the crux of creating an environment that's more attractive to residents and business owners. We've got to get crime under control."

David also plans to increase the number of officers on the force in the coming years.
