24 Possible Mayoral Candidates for Boston’s Sept. Preliminary Election

Boston City Council District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo

The deadline to sign-up for election nomination papers for Boston’s mayoral and city council elections has passed — with 24 possible candidates for mayor.

To put that in perspective, there were five total candidates in 2009’s preliminary election for Boston mayor.

The deadline to sign up for papers was Monday at 5 p.m., and there were no big surprises at the deadline — like Mayor Thomas Menino suddenly deciding to seek reelection.

“The 24 candidates who signed up by Monday’s deadline must now gather 3,000 signatures by May 21 in order to appear on the September 24th election ballot,” said city spokesperson Emilee Ellison. 

Some possible candidates have already started to announce they’re not running for office, like Frank John Addivinola Jr. and Gene Gorman. Or some haven’t committed to which race, like District 4 City Councilor Charles Yancey, who requested papers for the district and mayoral races. read more
