#BosPoli Round-Up for Tuesday, May 21: The Lists
The list of folks who have submitted signatures for mayor and City Council At-Large is below, via the city’s Election Department. The signatures have to be certified, so these are still largely potential candidates we're talking about. And the potential candidates must have 3,000 signatures to get on the mayoral ballot and 1,500 signatures to get on the at-large ballot.
The next important date on the 2013 municipal election calendar: June 21, the last day for election registrars to finish certification of signatures.
MAYOR: Felix G Arroyo; John F Barros; Robert Cappucci; Charles L Clemons Jr.; Daniel F Conley; John R Connolly; Rob Consalvo; William J Dorcena; Althea Garrison; John G C Laing Jr; David S Portnoy; Charlotte Golar Richie; Michael P Ross; Bill Walczak; Martin J Walsh; David James Wyatt; Charles Calvin Yancey
AT-LARGE: Frank John Addivinola Jr; Christopher J Conroy; Michael F Flaherty; Philip Arthur Frattaroli; Althea Garrison; Annissa Essaibi George; Gene I Gorman; Jed Hresko; Jack F Kelly III; Keith B Kenyon; Martin J Keogh; Stephen J Murphy; Catherine M O’Neill; Ayanna S Pressley; Jeffrey Michael Ross; Gareth R Saunders; Ramon Soto; Seamus M Whelan; Francisco L White; Douglas D Wohn; Michelle Wu
Now, a couple of things:
-- Three people have been verified as having a place on the ballot, so far: state Rep. Walsh, DA Conley, and City Councillor At-Large Connolly, who has been in the race since February.
-- Garrison, a perennial candidate, has apparently opted to run for at-large, as has former City Councillor Gareth Saunders. Divo Montiero has decided to run for District 4.
-- Gorman told the Reporter earlier this month that he is dropping out and supporting Rep. Walsh for mayor.
-- Yancey has submitted signatures for two offices: His District 4 seat and for mayor.
-- We have a couple of signature-gathering items today: Golar Richie campaign picked up over 8,100 signatures; Arroyo camp tweeted that they had gathered over 8,000; and Consalvo's camp told Boston magazine's David Bernstein that they've grabbed 7,000 signatures. As we've noted before, election officials stop counting after 3,600 signatures.
