Our own Don Warner Saklad provides the list.
Among the qualifiers: Charles Yancey, who is pulling a Paul Ryan by also qualifying to run for re-election as a city councilor, you know, just in case. The other city councilors running for mayor are all in just for mayor.
In the fall preliminary, voters will face an even more dizzying array of 19 candidates for the four at-large seats (two of which are being vacated by people who are running for mayor instead). Among them is ever-candidate Althea Garrison.
On the district side, only Frank Baker (Dorchester) is running without official opposition. Nine people are running to replace Rob Consalvo in District 5 (Hyde Park, Roslindale, Mattapan). Six people are running to replace Mike Ross in District 8 (Beacon Hill, Back Bay, Fenway, Mission Hill) - but not a Timilty, since Greg Timilty didn't get enough qualifying signatures.
In District 4, Yancey faces three opponents, including one from the new far-off Roslindale end of the district.
Perpetual candidate Roy Owens this year decided to run against Tito Jackson in District 7 (Roxbury)
