Scranton, Lackawanna County - The list of potential candidates who want to be mayor of Scranton is growing.
Elizabeth Randol announced Friday that she wants the job.
Randol is the first democrat to officially announce her intentions.
Randol has lived in South Scranton for the last 11 years. She has worked at the University of Scranton, in the private sector and also has served as chief of staff for prior Lackawanna County commissioners.
If elected to the position of mayor, Randol says she wants to tackle the city's financial troubles head-on.
"I think we follow the recovery plan. I think we pay our bills, we live within our means," Randol said. "Everyone knows who's a homeowner, a regular person in the universe, you can't spend more than you bring in and so being a good steward and being responsible about how we spend money is going to be paramount."
The democratic race for mayor could get even busier on Sunday.
City tax collector Bill Courtright has a campaign rally set for Sunday night where is could also possibly announce his bid for mayor.
If elected, Randol would be the first female mayor in Scranton.
Eyewitness News will have much more on her positions and qualifications as other candidates make their intentions known in the coming weeks.
