Jack McKernan is seeking re-election to his Lycoming County commissioner seat. For his second term’s campaign, McKernan is focusing again on county finances and said he hopes to bring the county out of a deficit before the end of this year. He is seeking the Republican nomination in the May 21 Primary.
“I’ve worked really hard the last three and a half years, and I would really love the opportunity to serve the people of Lycoming County for the next four years,” he said.
He said some of the biggest issues facing the county right now are county staff turnover and increasing costs from state and federal requirement for stormwater quality throughout the municipalities, which he said will eventually effect the county as it may need to assist municipalities that can’t afford the high costs.
McKernan also talks about a plan forward for White Deer Golf Complex that may involved selling nine holes of the course’s executive course.
