Two candidates who have never before held elective office in Matamoras are running for mayor.

Republican Cory Homer and Democrat Lena Marinaro are lifelong Matamoras residents with plenty of local civic experience. The winner will fill the seat held by the longtime mayor, Janet Clark, who was first elected in 2011 and is now serving out her third term.

The term is for four years.
