Born and raised in Upstate New York, Harris Weiss moved to Broome County to attend Binghamton University and fell in love with the community outside the University bubble. He decided to get involved, set down roots, and call Broome home.
With experience as legislative assistant and caseworker for state and federal elected representatives, Harris has advocated for much needed policy changes and fought to provide individuals the services they deserve. During COVID-19, Harris coordinated with the State Department to help evacuate constituents from overseas when flights were grounded worldwide, fought to get people their stimulus checks from the Federal government, and helped people obtain their unemployment benefits from a broken system. Currently, Harris is the Sponsorship Director for the LUMA Projection Arts Festival, an internationally recognized festival that brings tourists to Binghamton from all over the world.
Harris is running for Broome County Clerk because residents and businesses deserve a government that works better for them. He has heard the concerns of outdated and confusing processes, lack of accessibility to physical locations and public records, and failure to adapt to the needs of the community. Harris is ready to focus on modernization, accessibility, and transparency in the Clerk’s office to better serve Broome County residents.
