William Lantigua will seek another term as Lawrence mayor

LAWRENCE — William Lantigua, the controversial mayor of Lawrence who has been buffeted by allegations of political corruption in his ­administration, announced Friday that he will run for reelection next year.

About 100 people packed a bar and grill Friday night for an event originally billed as a way for Lantigua to find out whether the community supported his candidacy. A woman walked around the dining area with a pad, asking people for names, addresses, and their vote — yes or no — on another Lantigua run, the mayor said.
