WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Lynn Swann has been exploring a run for governor of Pennsylvania.
He might want to ask a current Steelers receiver for some advice on how to get into office.
Hines Ward will become the honorary mayor of the city of Washington Thursday.
Ward will receive the key to the city during a ceremony Thursday afternoon.
Ward will also serve as honorary chairman of the Washington Arts and Heritage Festival, which starts Thursday and runs through Sunday.
Ward's term as mayor will be a short one. He'll be back on the field in his day job on Friday.
