City Dems start campaign



Tiffer, 29, will be seeking to replace Mayor Donald Kasprzak, a Republican who decided not to seek re-election.

Tiffer said he will be a decisive leader.

“We deserve a mayor who inspires, innovates and who truly believes in the potential of our community,” he said.

“I have the necessary leadership and communication skills to effectively motivate and energize our community. I have the vision and foresight that can create and implement a master plan. I am a passionate and tenacious individual who finds a way to overcome challenges.”

Tiffer also said he will “work with the city’s unions to come to a fair agreement for all without the added cost of arbitration and litigation.”

Kasprzak has had several disputes with the city’s unions, namely the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the Plattsburgh Permanent Firefighters unions.

City Republicans have yet to meet to endorse their slate of candidates.
