Determined to Fight for Every Block, Sorace Lays Out Plan for Next Four Years
Today Danene Sorace announced she will be seeking a second term as mayor of the City of Lancaster. Unlike four years ago, this announcement came via a pre-recorded video from her kitchen. Sorace addressed the current state and surrounding challenges of COVID-19 and its continued affect on our community, especially during this holiday season.
“I didn’t expect to be delivering this news to you from my kitchen, but then again I don’t think any of us expected COVID-19 to turn our lives upside down,” said Sorace. “There are many challenges facing our city, yet I know great opportunities lay ahead for us, and I am more determined than ever to fight for every block, continuing the work we have set out to do.”
Sorace was recognized as a “visible, informed leader” during the COVID-19 crisis and, despite the challenges the pandemic has brought, laid out the real, measurable progress made by the City of Lancaster in the past three years.
Under her leadership, the City of Lancaster secured the largest commitment to affordable housing in nearly 50 years, began the city’s largest ever lead remediation effort, made strategic and significant investments in public infrastructure, and launched a nationally-recognized community engagement and language access program, making City Hall more accessible than it has ever been.
“My administration has also begun to address racial equity issues across the city, taking steps to lift up our black and brown neighbors. As Mayor, I will ensure a sound government where city residents receive the high quality services they deserve, delivered by a workforce that reflects the diversity of our community,” she said.
With a COVID-19 vaccine rollout in sight, Sorace addressed plans for the City’s economic recovery and the need for fair funding tools to solve the city’s structural deficit, ensuring the continuation of a thriving downtown and beyond.
“Lancaster, you put me to work as your Mayor to build a stronger and more equitable city for all. I am proud of the progress we have made. And I know there is still much to do,” she said.
