Salazar has a master’s degree in business administration from Campbell University in North Carolina, a master’s degree in ministry from Luther Rice College in Atlanta, Ga., and a bachelor of science degree from the University of North Carolina. “He’s well-qualified,” said Mayor Frank Roberts. “I’m impressed with him.” Whether Salazar stays on the commission after April will depend on whether Hearns is elected as mayor. Hearns opted not to run for re-election to his council seat to run for mayor. Under Lancaster’s system, each council member appoints one person to the Planning Commission. Each commissioner serves a four-year term, which runs concurrently with the term of the council member who made the appointment. LANCASTER – West Coast Baptist College instructor Manuel Salazar III was appointed to the Lancaster Planning Commission to fill the remaining three months of the term of the late William Andy. Salazar, 38, was appointed to the position by Vice Mayor Henry Hearns. Salazar was sworn in to the post Tuesday night after being confirmed by a unanimous vote of the City Council. “I look forward, with a lot of enthusiasm, to bringing a lot of good economic development and good planning to the city,” Salazar said. Salazar is relatively new to the city, having moved to Lancaster last year. Prior to that, he had served as a principal of a Christian school in Fayetteville, N.C., for four years.
