Pat Hogan Drops Out of Syracuse Mayoral Race

Sep 16, 2013

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:

“Shortly after last Tuesday’s Democratic Primary, I personally decided that I was not interested in accepting the Republican line to challenge Stephanie Miner in November.  At the end of the day, I am a proud life-long Democrat.  I am disappointed that the people of Syracuse will not have a choice for Mayor this November.  Receiving 53% of the vote in a primary is not a resounding victory.  I hope Mayor Miner is humbled by those numbers and works hard over the next four years to be less divisive and confrontational.”
