On This Day: Janice Stork becomes first female mayor

Lancaster has seen many mayors in its 280+ year history. On This Day in 1990 Janice Stork became Lancaster’s first female mayor! She served the City as mayor from 1990 to 1998. She remains so far the only woman to lead the Red Rose City.


On This Day is a prompt I started last month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
