LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WIVB) — When the next election cycle is over, Lackawanna’s Mayor hopes to still be in the position she’s in now.
On Wednesday morning, the Lackawanna Democratic Committee announced that not only Annette Iafallo, but City Council President Frederic Marrano and 4th Ward Councilmember Kevin Surdyke are all seeking re-election.
The candidates have been endorsed by both the Lackawanna and Erie County Democratic Committees.
“When I took office in 2020 along with Council President Marrano and Councilmember Surdyke, Lackawanna’s economy was in shambles. A burdensome tax structure in place for almost 40 years made it nearly impossible to attract new businesses to Lackawanna. And those loyal small businesses that did operate here, barely survived. Sadly, some didn’t,” Mayor Iafallo said.
Iafallo has served as Mayor of Lackawanna since January 2020. Her current term expires at the end of this year.
Iafallo and Marrano will share a campaign headquarters on Ridge Road, which is scheduled to open on April 1.
