Candidates Line Up For Scranton Mayoral Race

The race to replace former Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright is on.

The Democratic and Republican Party in Scranton both convened this week to select their candidates, while a number of individuals are mulling third party runs for Mayor.

On Monday evening, the Scranton Democratic Party executive committee selected Christopher Cullen, lawyer and political analyst, as their nominee on the first ballot for the special election over seven other candidates, according to the Scranton Times-Tribune.

The Lackawanna County Democratic Party executive committee is set to gather tonight to give the final nod and hold an “affirmation vote” for Cullen Wednesday evening.

On Tuesday, the Lackawanna County Republican Party tapped Charlie Spano, a retired elementary school teacher, to be their nominee over eight other candidates for Mayor in November, the Scranton Times-Tribune reports.
