Four candidates will run in Lantana’s Town Council elections on March 14, but the mayor’s race is already decided.
10895662484?profile=RESIZE_180x180Vice Mayor Karen Lythgoe, who has been acting mayor since Robert Hagerty’s resignation took effect in October, was the only candidate to qualify for the mayor’s race and so is elected automatically. She is 63 and is completing her first three-year term on the council. Lythgoe, who works for LexisNexis, will be sworn in on March 27, according to Town Clerk Kathleen Dominguez.
Mark Zeitler, 66, is seeking re-election to the Group 3 seat as he completes his first term. He is an air-conditioning contractor. His opponent is Raymond Lastella, 32, an entrepreneur with a boat detailing company.
John Raymer and Christopher Castle are vying for the Group 4 seat currently held by Lythgoe. Raymer, 52, a retired Army veteran and the manager at Ace Rental Place in Lantana, finished second in a contest earlier this year against incumbent Lynn “Doc” Moorhouse. Castle, 37, has never sought office before. He is a maintenance facilities director for PetMeds.
Candidates had to submit their qualification papers by Nov. 18. Terms are for three years, and Lantana has no term limits.
