Woman running for mayor's seat


Julie Brosius, a Republican resident of the 5th Ward, said she decided to run for the office currently held by Sunbury Mayor David Persing because she feels it’s time for a change.

“In many aspects, the community is brimming with a variety of talent that is not being utilized to a full potential,” Brosius said.

“The heartbeat of Sunbury must be resuscitated to once again become a vibrant city as it is slowly fading into the abyss.  At this time, I will not reveal all projects and meetings planned on my development whiteboard.  But I will tell you a small fraction of the resuscitation strategy is education, veterans, history and the citizens.  The community will be quite surprised but pleased by my approach to all matters involving Sunbury.”

Brosius said she did not have any political ambition but began attending council meetings and decided it was time to get involved.

If elected,Brosius would be the first woman mayor in Sunbury history.
