The City of Ithaca’s Acting Mayor Laura Lewis announced her campaign for a full term as mayor on Saturday, March 5.
Lewis assumed the position of acting mayor after former Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick stepped down on February 6, 2022, according to WENY News. Lewis will serve as acting mayor through the November election to finish out Myrick’s term.
Lewis hopes to help the city continue its recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and refine the city’s public safety mission, including finalizing its Re-Imagining Public Safety plan.
