Utica Councilman Stepping Down


David Testa Cites Medical Issues

The day after local primaries, Utica 2nd Ward Common Councilman David Testa has submitted his resignation, effective immediately. Mr. Testa cites medical issues as the reason for his resignation.

Testa, a Democrat, was running for re-election in November to represent West Utica. With his resignation, he will be replaced on the ballot through the process of selecting a name off his three person Vacancy Committee. That name would be included in the submission, to the Oneida County Board of Election, of a Certificate of Substitution.

Whoever is named to replace Testa on the ballot, they will face Republican David Herbowy in the General Election.
