Lockport Democrats seek mayoral hopefuls - fast

The Lockport City Democratic Committee is seeking a candidate for mayor in this November's election.

Chairman Roger L. Sherrie said Friday that he wants letters of intent and resumes sent by Wednesday to lockportcitydemocraticcomm@gmail.com or by mail to the LCDC, 12 Davison Road, Lockport, NY 14094.

Mayor Anne E. McCaffrey, a Republican, announced Thursday she's resigning as of Aug. 8 to become president and CEO of Eastern Niagara Hospital. Common Council President David R. Wohleben, also a Republican, will succeed her and run as the GOP candidate for the one-year unexpired term.

Sherrie, who lost to McCaffrey in 2015, said he expects the county Democratic Committee to choose a candidate Thursday. Asked if he might run himself, Sherrie said, "I have not closed the door to that possibility."
