  • Elder, Hood vie for City Council seat

    Political newcomer Anthony Elder is challenging incumbent Kenny Hood for the District 1 seat on Lancaster City Council.
    Hood won the seat in a special election in 2008 to succeed longtime Councilman Preston Blackmon, who died earlier that year.
    District 1 is the southern-most district in the city. It includes areas along South Market Street, South Main Street and Kershaw-Camden Highway.
    City Council seats are non-partisan, which means candidates don’t run by political party.
