Mark C. Crocker, flight navigator and senior staff officer for New York Air National Guard for the last 24 years, said he plans to seek election to the Town Board.
Crocker, a Republican, said he plans to retire in September to pursue public office.
"Serving on the Town of Lockport Recreation Committee for the past two years has inspired me to become more involved in the community by seeking a Lockport town councilman seat," he said in a news release.
Crocker added that he intends to maintain the vision of the current board, which includes financial stability, no town tax, park land preservation and properly managed growth.
And incumbent Republican Paul H. Pettit has announced his bid for re-election.
Pettit was appointed to the Town Board in December 1996, replacing J.O. Thompson, who was appointed supervisor. Pettit was elected to full terms in 1997 and 2001.
Pettit, a retired Delphi Systems manufacturing engineer, said he is a fiscal conservative who wants to deliver services to town residents at the lowest possible cost.
