The two candidates for Lancaster City Council District 1 know what people without jobs in Lancaster are going through, and they want to work to bring more jobs to the area.
Racarda Blackmon, 57, and Kenneth "Kenny" Hood, 50, are running for the seat, left vacant after the death of Blackmon's father, Preston, in August. Preston Blackmon had held the seat for 30 years. There are two years left in the term.
