The man who’s become known as

the “spokesperson for the City of

Lancaster,” will be seeking another

term in office.

Jerry Wehrle has taken out candidacy

papers to run for re-election next April.

Wehrle has been the mayor of Lancaster

since the Spring of 2000. He’ll be seeking

his eighth term in office. So far, Mayor

Wehrle has no opposition.


The same can be said for other

candidates for Lancaster Common

Council. None of the four who are

seeking election or re-election are

facing opposition.

In District-One, Chad Olmstead is

looking to be elected to the council

for the first time. That’s after being

appointed earlier this year. The same

for Pete Hoffman, who’s hoping to be

elected to an At-Large position on

the common council. Hoffman was

also appointed earlier this year.

Seeking re-election are Third-District

Alderman Leroy Ihm, and Council

Member At-Large, Dennis Morgan.


Anyone who’s looking to be run

for election to the Lancaster Common

Council next Spring, has to file candidacy

papers with the city clerk’s office

by January 7th.
