Jason Corrigan, 21-Oneonta Mayoral Candidate

Jason Corrigan Looks To Lead Oneonta

Jason Corrigan is a 21 year old man and student at SUNY Oneonta. On April 23, he launched his campaign for mayor of Oneonta, becoming the youngest person in the city's history to seek the position.

To date Corrigan has had several articles written about him in the Oneonta Daily Star, Hometown Oneonta, The Albany Times Union, and Utica's NBC affiliate WKTV.

Several internet blogs have popped up touting his community work and service as well as his campaign issues. He is without doubt a capable and serious young man who may join the ranks of six other mayors of small cities who are under the age of thirty.

Corrigan has two videos on youtube that have been getting hits in the hundreds. He is a worthy candidate and possible next mayor of Oneonta New York.

Jason showed up at the UCCCA Arts Festival in dress pants and a tie. Miller showed up in shorts and a t-shirt. I asked Corrigan why he was in a tie and he said because he was still working, to find out how to improve Oneonta with our residents.

I think Jason could serve as a good role model for the incoming students as a student who took exceptional interest in his community and wanted to make it better. If he can get to the incoming students then we might see real change in their behavior.

Oneonta is not going to rise up magically because Corrigan gets elected. But if he does get elected, it will most likely become a friendly place for those who attend college here, and those who live here year round. This I'm rather sure of.

I'm curious. How does he plan to get a train into Oneonta? It's not like he can just go to the Amtrak head office and demand it. Isn't Amtrak itself kind of struggling, it's not exactly the time to build a new line that probably won't be profitable?
