SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A second Syracuse Democrat is throwing his hat in the ring to challenge City of Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh in the 2021 elections.

Current Common Councilor-At-Large Michael Greene launched his campaign Tuesday morning. He says his campaign platform will include expanding affordable housing and improving code enforcement.

A native of Central New York and graduate of the Industrial & Labor Relations School at Cornell University, Greene started his career in public service working for the Port Authority of NY & NJ. He went to night school at CUNY-Baruch and earned an MBA in Entrepreneurship.

He’s been an Assistant Vice President for New York City Economic Development Corporation, managing city-owned properties. Greene moved back to Syracuse and became involved in local campaigns. He was appointed to fill the vacant Councilor-at-Large position in 2017 and has been re-elected to the position twice.

In December, Democratic Common Councilor Khalid Bey announced his campaign for Mayor.
