2nd candidate enters Cortland mayoral election


Another candidate has entered the race to become the city of Cortland’s next mayor.

Scott Steve is a local business owner and former county legislator, serving from 2002-2005 including two years as chairman.

His company, Scott Steve Builders, was founded in 1985.

On Friday (August 27), he launched an official campaign Facebook page.

This included a statement that indicated more information on his candidacy would be coming later on during the week — now available here.

He now contests former mayor and current city alderman Bruce Tytler, who confirmed in March he would make an attempted run at his old job.

Tytler served two prior terms on Common Council before being elected mayor in 2000. Before that, he was an educator and eventually a principal.

Steve is running on the Republican ticket against Tyler, a Democrat.

Both look to succeed Brian Tobin — the city’s longest-ever serving mayor at five terms — who announced in February he would not seek re-election this fall.

The vote will coincide with General Election Day on Tuesday, November 2.
