Raitzik, 42, who ran in prior years as a running mate of current Mayor Ray Coles, will be running as the only Democrat against incumbent Republican Albert Akerman.
“I’m looking forward to representing all the people of Lakewood,” Raitzik told TLS.
The deadline to file was today.
Raitzik, who ran four times as a running mate, served on the Board of Education in 2017, and currently serves as a teacher in both Mekor Hatorah and Shagas Aryeh.
The candidate also currently serves on the Shade Tree Commission and Municipal Alliance.
The Primaries take place in June, and the General Election in November.
