A second candidate has appeared in the early campaign for Auburn City Council.

Cayuga County Legislator Christina Calarco will not seek another term in county government, instead looking to get involved directly with city government.

Calarco is a Democrat. She joins former Auburn firefighter Terry Winslow, also a Democrat, seeking one-of-two city council seats that will be open in 2023.

She’s a teacher in the Auburn Enlarged City School District, who says the city is a ‘hidden gem’ that has ‘unlimited potential’. “I want to help realize that potential,” Calarco wrote in a letter to the County’s Democratic Committee.

The Cayuga County Legislature is shrinking from 15 districts to 11. The city, where she represents voters in Cayuga County government will lose two seats in that reduction.

The Citizen is reporting that Republican Councilor Tim Locastro has ruled out running for mayor, and is undecided on another term. So far, the only candidate to come forward in the race for mayor is Jimmy Giannettino, a member of City Council.
