Lockport Mayor Anne McCaffrey is seeking election to a full term as mayor, she announced today.

McCaffrey, 47, was thrust into the position of mayor just over a year ago following the sudden resignation of former Mayor Mike Tucker on Feb. 21, 2014. She has been tasked to righting the city's financial ship during her tenure and began her office with a series of small moves to show taxpayers her administration was going to save money, including the cancellation of a pair of city credit cards and sale of the mayor's city-paid-for car.

“I am running for mayor to continue the hard work that must be done to build upon the economic improvements that we have made in the past year,” said McCaffrey. “We have created fiscal accountability through a number of safeguards, including the implementation of a new independent audit committee, policies that create greater financial transparency and spending reductions that have put us back on a responsible path.”cCaffrey's political career began in 2011 when she was elected to the Common Council. A year later she was appointed as president of the Council by then-Mayor Tucker who referred to her “a rising star of the city.”

McCaffrey lives on Willow Street with her husband Chris and their three daughters.

Mike Pillot has announced intentions to seek the position of mayor, as well. There are reports of another Democratic candidate expected to announce, as well.
