I just received word that Brenda Powers is planning to file as a candidate in the 2010 Lancaster mayoral race.
According to a press release from Brenda, she plans to officially file her papers at 10 a.m. Saturday in the clerk’s office.
Current Mayor Don Rinthen has already filed for re-election.

Lancaster City Councilwoman Brenda Powers announced today that she would be a candidate for Mayor of the City of Lancaster in the 2010 election. Powers decided to announce her decision today to end months of speculation about her candidacy.
“I decided it was time to announce my candidacy. Many citizens of our fine city have inquired about my future plans. I have decided that the best thing I can do for the city is to run for mayor,” Powers said.
“ I have decided to enter the mayoral race for Lancaster for the people of Lancaster. Serving on the council these two years I have come to realize that Lancaster has many assets and lots of room for growth. With lots of hard work and a love for people and this city, great things can happen in Lancaster. If I am elected these great things will happen,” she said.
