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 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."
