Today experienced local attorney John Nabinger officially announced his campaign for Seneca County District Attorney in the 2023 local election. Nabinger is a Republican who started his career as a Seneca County Assistant District Attorney and has served as a Seneca County Public Defender for the past 20 years.

“I’m running for Seneca County District Attorney to bring my 25 years of experience to serve the community we all love,” said Nabinger. “Having served as a prosecutor and public defender, I have the balanced perspective, experience and qualifications to keep our community safer as your new District Attorney.”

For 25 years, Nabinger has served as an attorney in State, County and Municipal courtrooms across Upstate New York. During his career, he has handled more than 2000 cases, including more than 1000 felonies.

In 1998, fresh out of law school, he began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in Seneca County. He later served as an Assistant District Attorney in Onondaga County for several years. During his time as a prosecutor, he handled various areas of prosecution, presented to the Grand Jury and handled felony cases including homicides.

For the past 20 years, Nabinger has worked every day in the Seneca County Court system while serving as a Seneca County Public Defender. In this role, he provides the Constitutionally guaranteed right to a defense for those accused of crimes.

Nabinger and a team of volunteers are circulating petitions to place his name on the Republican and Conservative ballot lines in the November election. He has earned the endorsement of both the Seneca County Republican Committee and Seneca County Conservative Party.

“The Seneca County Republican Committee has enthusiastically endorsed John Nabinger for D.A. because he has the experience and balanced perspective needed for the position,” said Seneca County Republicans Chairman and former Sheriff Tom Fox. “He also will be a strong voice speaking out against bad policies like Defunding the Police and Bail Reform.”

“John Nabinger is an experienced attorney who knows the law – and has a strong understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights,” said Seneca County Conservative Chairman William White. “We’re proud to stand behind John and help elect him as our new District Attorney.”

Nabinger, 56, lives in Romulus. He is a graduate of the Syracuse University College of Law, SUNY Brockport and Onondaga Community College.

Republican Policies and Platforms

We are focused on a better Seneca County and a strong growing prosperous Seneca County.   Our positions have been and are being a Business Friendly Community and Republicans support this policy.  With these trying times and such a great loss of revenue for so many it’s even more important now than ever to remain strong, united and forge ahead. We as Republicans need to be supportive of new businesses and help all businesses survive. For so long Seneca County has relied on Tourism as a major source of income for many families and businesses. With the devastation of Covid threats it has reduced local tourism by three quarters. This is why we have to fight to keep present and operating businesses intact and operating. We can’t afford, nor do we want layoffs or businesses closing.  We have been dealing with the Covid Pandemic and our present Board of Supervisors have been trying to work through this. They have created a Covid  Task force and meet regularly on issues with this pandemic. There are different opinions on what to do, or how to do it, but they’re working on it. Republicans agreeing to disagree on these items is not all a bad thing. Everyone is working for the same goal and that’s to keep our community safe and try and slow this pandemic and return to normal as soon as possible. We all hear so many different comments and what’s happening but so much is half truths and not how things happen.

When we select candidates we need to make sure they have our goals for a bigger and better economy in Seneca County. We can’t allow the left wing liberals’ to destroy our future and economy over their personal agenda. We actually have people of the other party affiliation serving and running on present boards that have made it clear they only have one thing in mind and that is to close a business who is one of our major employers and contributors for local community organizations . 

It’s important to help keep our community safe and strong and fight side by side, elbow to elbow to achieve our goals. We want to be known throughout the state that Seneca County is open for business and we welcome you.  

Thank you and we’re all part of this movement of Business Friendly in Seneca County.

Tom Fox, Chairman, Seneca County Republican Committee
