Gettysburg Mayor Ted Streeter officially announced this week that he would not be seeking reelection at the end of his four-year term that expires on December 31.
“I want to make a formal announcement of what everybody already knows. I will not be running for mayor this year,” said Streeter. “I’ve put in over 20 years with the borough on various committees, boards, and councils, and it’s time to move on.”
Streeter said he had already talked with three people who are interested in the position. “I invite anybody who is interested in the job to contact me and we can sit down and talk about whatever so you know what you’re getting into.”
Mayoral candidates who run as Democrats or Republicans will face off in a primary on May 18.
Mayoral candidates who run as Greens or Independents will not run in the primary – more than one candidate from each of these parties can be on the General election ballot on Nov. 2.
People interested in running for major should contact Adams County Voter Registration (717-337-9832) to get the necessary documents to file.

In addition to Streeter, terms are ending for three Gettysburg borough council candidates this year: Patricia Lawson (Ward 1), Chris Berger (Ward 2), and Judie Butterfield (Ward 3). None of the council candidates have yet indicated if they will be running for reelection.
