An Allentown business owner and current school board member is gearing up for a run at a city council seat.

Jeff Glazier is a third generation owner of Glazier's Furniture at 159 W. Hamilton Street in Allentown.

He's currently serving an interim spot on Allentown City Council in the seat vacated by Mike Schlossberg, who left to take Jennifer Mann's state representative seat.

After a 12-year volunteer stint serving on the Allentown School District School Board of Directors, Glazier plans to announce he is running for Allentown City Council.

An Allentown native, Jeff holds bachelor’s and a master’s degrees from the Pennsylvania State University.

He plans to announce his candidacy Thursday at 1 p.m. in front of Glazier's Furniture store.
