LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Danene Sorace led from the moment election results started pouring in Tuesday night and is now the Democratic option in the race to replace Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray.
Sorace beat her competitors Kevin Ressler and Norman Bristol-Colon.
The Lancaster councilwoman had the support of Gray and the Democratic Party in Lancaster City. She credited her victory to her experience in city government.
During her campaign, Sorace, said she would like to strengthen neighborhoods outside the downtown. She told her supporters that Tuesday night was just the beginning and there is still work to do.
“I am excited,” she said. “I am honored to have the City of Lancaster and the voters’ support. That comes with responsibility and I feel it.”
Sorace will run against unopposed Republican candidate Cindy Stewart and Independent candidate Tony Dastra.
