On today’s Meet Cortland County segment:
City mayor Brian Tobin reflected on his decision this week not to seek reelection in the fall.
The city will now have a new mayor and police chief by year’s end.
Tobin graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1994 and returned to coach the men’s swim team in 2002.
He later joined city council before serving a record five terms as mayor, starting in 2007.
In addition to his 19th season as a full-time swimming coach, Tobin says he plans to spend more time with his wife, Kelly, and their two daughters — Kelly and Brian met during an event he was attending as mayor.
“I have no doubt this city is in good hands,” said Tobin. “Over the next ten months, I will continue to fully dedicate myself to this role. There is no coasting on the way out; I plan on finishing strong.”
