Two more apply for nomination papers for District 7 race

The District 7 race may have an additional two candidates: Sheneal Parker and Haywood Fennell Sr.

Others who have applied for nomination papers at City Hall - as of this afternoon - include incumbent City Councillor Tito Jackson, David James Wyatt of Dorchester, and perennial candidates Althea Garrison and Roy Owens.

Parker, a Fenway resident, fell short during the signature-gathering phase for the special election earlier this year; Fennell missed the deadline and ran as a write-in candidate instead, picking up 2.22 percent of the vote in the preliminary.

Parker is on the Fenway Community Development Corporation's board of directors and the Wentworth Institute of Technology Community Task Force. A former Boston Public Schools teacher, she has also worked as a community organizer for the Mattapan Community Development Corporation.

Fennell is a veteran, author and local activist.

Candidates must gather 200 certified signatures in order to get on the preliminary and general election ballots.
