Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly is seeking re-election.

So far, he's running unopposed.

He says upcoming challenges include the crime rate increasing and gang violence. He also plans to address juvenile court operations.

"The overall goal with these kids who are law violators, if safely and possible, divert them from the system, because those in the system are more likely to come back," Kelly said.

 Kelly says he plans to continue to be tough on Internet sex predators and address safety and re-unification with families of neglected children.
