Central Square, NY â€“ Scott Duggleby announced today that he was withdrawing his name for consideration in the race for New York State Assemblyman from the 115th District.
Duggleby, a resident of Cleveland, in Oswego County, and President of the Central Square Board of Education said, â€œAfter serious thought and contemplation I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration in the race for the 115th Assembly seat.â€
