Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) While he didn't win the seat for Broome County Executive, this isn't the last we'll hear from Tarik Abdelazim.

After making his mark in the City of Binghamton's Planning Department, Abdelazim calls Broome County Home.

After the unofficial loss to Broome County Executive Debbie Preston, Abdelazim says he knew the odds were against him.

He remains confident and true to the 7 month campaign he ran, and calls it honest and true.

"I had been working for the city for the past six years. With the crisis that we face with flooding, fracking, and the job crisis I'm going to find a way, a positive way to play a roll in addressing these challenges," says Abdelazim.

Abdelazim is not sure what his next step will be, but he will find to stay involved in the County.
