After six years of being off Pulaski Town Council, Lane Penn misses serving the people and has decided it’s time to throw his hat back in the ring.
“I enjoy serving the citizens of Pulaski,” said the former councilman, who chose not to run for re-election in 2008, but is a candidate in the May 6 municipal election. “I’m not a politician, but I do enjoy working with the citizens.”
A native of Pulaski, Penn said he wants to see Pulaski continue to grow. His main goals are to “make sure we get jobs re-established in Pulaski and get people back to work.” He is particularly proud of having served on council when James Hardie, one of the area’s biggest employers, set up operations in the town’s industrial park off Bob White Boulevard.
Penn also is a supporter of developing the Route 99 corridor to encourage traffic flow from Interstate 81 into town. “I think that would be a big plus for the town,” he said.
