Bracey seeks to become York’s second three-term mayor

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – The mayor of York will seek a third term.

Mayor Kim Bracey announced her re-election bid on Thursday.

“It is an absolute honor to work daily on behalf of the over 43,000 residents of our great city. Together, we’ve made incredible strides forward for our community and together I hope to continue the hard work to benefit our City on behalf of our City,” Bracey said in a release.

If she is re-elected, Bracey would be the first female elected to a third term as mayor of York. The city has only had one other three-term mayor, Bill Althaus.

“I hope to continue the work we’ve begun. Investment is up, crime is down, we’ve held the line in five consecutive budgets and are now steadfast on a plan to continue to reduce property taxes. Challenges will always exist. Time and again, our York community has proved that hurdles can always be overcome and challenges will always be bested. It is an honor to seek a third term and would be an incredible privilege to be granted the opportunity by my neighbors,” Bracey said.

Bracey was the first African-American elected mayor of the White Rose City.
