Former WROC-TV news anchor Rachel Barnhart has announced she is currently exploring a run for mayor.
“Our team is exploring a mayoral run,” Barnhart stated, via Twitter. “I’m looking for the best opportunity to serve our community. I’m a lifelong city resident, and a graduate of city schools, and I built my career around covering issues in the city that are important to residents. Our city is struggling with poverty, and a lack of economic opportunity. There are problems we need to solve. Right now, they’re not being adequately addressed.”
