Clarence Lewis, of Butler Street in Shickshinny, who was recently appointed to serve on the Shickshinny Sewer Authority, said he has filed his petition to run for mayor.
He is seeking the Republican nomination in the May 21 primary election. Lewis will be vying for the post held by Beverly Moore.
Besides the sewer authority, Lewis said he is active with the Shickshinny Forward group and several other community organizations.
Lewis has lived in the Shickshinny area since 2000, and his focus is on revitalizing the commercial and recreational functions of the community, he said. In addition, he said, he will work to restore an atmosphere of cooperation between the mayor and council.
