John Howard jokes that he’ll probably never have to exercise the duties of his newly elected position.
Howard, who has served on Lancaster City Council since 1982, was elected mayor pro tempore at Tuesday’s meeting. He will assume mayoral duties in Mayor Joe Shaw’s absence.
But that’s the catch – Shaw is hardly absent.
Shaw said he’s missed just two council meetings in the nearly 30 years he’s been mayor, and Howard is quite aware of that.
