Lockwood to run for Mayor

Lance Maggart

Granby Town Trustee and local business owner David Lockwood has announced his plans to run for the position of Mayor of Granby. Granby will hold municipal elections on Tuesday April 5.

Lockwood announced his plan to run for mayor on Monday Jan. 11. Granby’s current Mayor Jynnifer Pierro announced her intention not to seek reelection on Jan. 5. After Pierro’s announcement Lockwood decided to stage a campaign of his own. Lockwood was elected to the position of Town Trustee in 2012. He is currently attending basic training with the National Guard and was unavailable for comment but stated in a press release that he will be back in Granby full-time at the end of January.

According to Granby Town Clerk Deb Hess the town has yet to receive any nominating petitions for any board positions in the upcoming April election. Interested parties can still pick up a nominating petition from Granby Town Hall. To be featured on the April ballot prospective candidates must first acquire the signatures of 10 registered electors who are residents of Granby. Nominating petitions must be returned to Granby Town Hall with the requisite signatures by the end of the day on Jan. 25.

The April election will be a mail ballot only for Granby. The Town is looking to fill five seats on the board including the position of mayor and four trustee seats.
