SPENCER — After one term on Spencer’s Board of Aldermen, David Lamanno is seeking re-election. Lamanno, 49, said he’s proud of the work the board has accomplished in the last two years.

“I feel the current board has a positive working relationship and has achieved some important goals,” he said.

Among those were adoption of a comprehensive minimum housing standards ordinance, increased penalties for civil citations, adopting a dog tethering ordinance, the completion of the Stanback Educational Forest and the Fourth Street storm water project.

“While we can be pleased with what we have accomplished, I think we can all agree that Spencer faces many challenges ahead,” he said.

If re-elected, Lamanno said he’d like to focus on the future of the Park Plaza shopping center and strengthening the town’s relationship with the N.C. Transportation Museum. Lamanno said that a strong partnership with the museum could help “strengthen our struggling business district.”

Lamanno earned his bachelor’s degree from Western Carolina University, and currently works in the circulation department of the Rowan Public Library. He is involved in music ministry at his local church.
