Utica Councilman At Large Frank DiBrango has announced his plans to seek re-election.

DiBrango was first elected in 2017.

He's the owner of Accutel Answering Service in Utica and is a Retired City of Utica firefighter.

DiBrango, a Democrat, currently serves as Co-Chair of the Public Safety Committee.

He also serves on the Recreation, Youth, Parks, Seniors, Veterans and Education, as well as Economic Development and MHA committees.

Dibrango said "serving as a member of the common council has been a great honor, it has given me great insight into what the people of the city expect from local representatives.  I feel that during my first term as councilman at large I have gained valuable knowledge and experience of our city government and how to make it work best for the people who live and work here.  If I am fortunate enough to be re-elected I plan on bringing the same work ethic and independent thinking to the council as I have in my first term.
