BINGHAMTON, NY – A lifelong Broome County resident touted his experience in economic development, government and volunteerism in formally announcing his campaign for New York State Assembly today.

Republican Robin Alpaugh launched his candidacy surrounded by family, friends and supporters inside Custom Systems Integration inside the Glendale Technology Park.

Alpaugh was instrumental in assisting with the formation of C-S-I roughly 20 years ago when he worked for Empire State Development.

The Binghamton resident also highlighted his work on behalf of the community as the Executive Director of the United Way of Broome County and as Director of Operations for State Senator Fred Akshar.

Alpaugh says Greater Binghamton needs a fresh voice in Albany.

“I’m deeply committed to solving the quality of life issues that matter to Southern Tier families, making our community safe, brining economic prosperity to the region. That’s what I’m fighting for,” says Alpaugh.
