New York’s Governor is seeking another term but not with his current second-in-command at his side.

Lieutenant Governor Robert “Bob” Duffy will not be seeking reelection alongside Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle is reporting that Duffy, who has long been rumored to want to return to the Rochester area, insists he is not being forced out.  In the article by Brian Sharp, Duffy is quoted as saying, “I made a decision…It’s a life decision, not a political one.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my four years.”

Duffy was a police officer with the Rochester Police Department, joining the force in 1976 and rising to the rank of captain in 1992 and chief of police six years later.  He was elected Mayor of the City of Rochester in 2005.  Cuomo tapped him for the post of Lieutenant Governor in 2010.

The Lt. Governor, who suffers chronic back pain, recently bought a waterfront home in the Finger Lakes.

Duffy says he will complete the remainder of his current term.
