Campos has an update on who’s running for what.
Commentary dropped by the City Secretary Office a couple of days ago to check out the latest campaign treasurer designations.
Here is who I will add to my political page later on today:
For Mayor: Keryl Douglas, Eric Dick, Michael Fitzsimmons, and Victoria Lane.
For At-Large 2: David Robinson, Dr. Carolyn Evans-Shabazz, and Brent Gordon.
For At-Large 3: As reported yesterday, Al Edwards.
For District B: Joe Joseph.
For District C: Pete Sosa.
For District D: Lana Edwards, Larry McKenzie, and Anthony Robinson.
For District G: Ben Taef.
Of course, these folks still have to plunk down the filing fee when the time comes.
Yes, former HCDP Chair candidate Keryl Douglas is running for Mayor. I’d heard about this from two different people before Campos did his digging at the City Secretary’s office. I have no idea why Keryl Douglas thinks she can be elected Mayor, but then the same can be said for everyone not named Annise Parker and Ben Hall. Speaking of whom, you have to figure Hall is not happy about this. Douglas will be competing with him directly for African-American voters. I’m sure he’d prefer to not have that competition.
You can see Campos’ list of candidates who have filed designation of treasurer papers here. This week is when campaign finance reports for the period ending June 30 will be appearing on the city’s reporting website. That will give a good indication about who’s running for what as well. I’ll be keeping an eye on those and will write about what I find. First order of business will be to see what Parker and Hall’s reports look like. Stay tuned.
