Danene Sorace

Power 100 list

Danene Sorace

Mayor

City of Lancaster

As mayor, her duty is to serve the City of Lancaster.

Sorace has been in the position of mayor for three years. She is Lancaster’s 43rd mayor, and the second woman to serve in the position. Prior to her election as mayor, she served for three years on Lancaster City council.

She is proud of so many things, many of which can be found at www.lancasterblockbyblock.com. “I am proud to work alongside so many people who are invested in the success of the City–inside and out of city government,” Sorace said.

“There is a Talmud quote that summarizes a life lesson I have gleaned from this job: ‘Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.’ I am never going to complete the work, but I work to make things a little better every day,” she said.

Sorace enjoys time with friends and family because they laugh together. “Laughter is the best medicine!” she said.
