Tony Corriher seeking return to Landis board

LANDIS — It’s been a number of years since Landis native Tony Corriher has sat on the town board. But he hopes after November he’ll be able to make a return.
Corriher, 67, said he loves his town and wants the best for it, but he’d like to see that happen at the lowest tax rate.
“My opinion right now is that spending of our tax dollars is not under control as much as it could be,” he said.
Corriher has served two previous terms as alderman and ran unsuccessfully in the last two elections.
He is employed by Landis Plumbing Supply in sales and is currently a firefighter with the China Grove Fire Department. Corriher is retired from Landis Fire Department where he served as chief for two years and as chaplain.
Corriher is a graduate of South Rowan High School and Mitchell Junior College.
He is a member of Landis Baptist Church. He and his wife, Kathy, have two sons, Jonathan and Joshua. The Corrihers also have a grandson named Garrett.
