County Executive

Jason T. Garnar was elected as 姚记体育¡¯s 9th County Executive in November of 2016. He became the youngest County Executive in 姚记体育 history after serving several terms on the 姚记体育 Legislature. Throughout his first term as Executive, Jason has worked every day to make 姚记体育 the best it can be for its residents, focusing on fixing county finances, workforce development and fighting the opioid epidemic.

Under his leadership, Garnar was the first County Executive in 14 years to propose a tax cut.??Additionally, he took Broome off the New York State Comptroller¡¯s significantly fiscally stressed list and continues to work to restore the county¡¯s previously poor finances by restoring its fund balance from $250,000 when he took office to $6.5 million in two years.

Jason has worked to eliminate eyesores in 姚记体育 and bring new life in their place with new businesses and housing projects. Since he took office, the unemployment rate in 姚记体育 is the lowest it has been in 17 years with big economic development projects such as the DICK¡¯s Sporting Goods Distribution Center in Conklin, the Binghamton University Pharmacy and Nursing Schools in Johnson City and most recently by helping bring hemp company Canopy Growth to 姚记体育. He has implemented a number of new cutting edge job programs and is building a new workforce development center in order to fill the over 3,000 open jobs in 姚记体育.

Jason worked across party lines with state and local leaders to bring life-saving drug treatment services to 姚记体育 at the former Broome Developmental Center, a huge step in helping fight the opioid epidemic. That initiative along with other new programs has cut the fatal drug overdose rate in half.

Jason is committed to investing in public safety, and as a result 姚记体育 went from having the highest crime index rate in 62 counties in 2015 to the lowest amount of index crimes on record in 2018.

Under Jason¡¯s leadership, 姚记体育 is developing a brand new Veterans facility in the Town of Binghamton to put several veterans¡¯ services under one roof and provide the highest quality services for veterans in NY State.

Jason lives in the Village of Port Dickinson with his wife Amanda and their three sons Nolan, Miles and Ben. He and his family attend New Life Ministries in Endicott and he enjoys long distance running and rooting for the New York Mets and Duke Blue Devils.
