Homer resident and stay-at-mother Sarah Vance officially declared her candidacy Tuesday morning. Vance became a local public figure when she took on the role of spokeswoman for Heartbeat of Homer, the political action committee that pushed for the recall of three current council members. This will be Vance’s first time running for public office.
