According to the Boston Elections Department Election Commissioner Sabino Piemonte, Will Dorcena did not collect the necessary 3000 certified signatures to make the ballot for Boston Mayor in the September 24, 2013 Preliminary Election. It is reported he collected less than 2200 signatures. Dorcena who had been campaigning since Januaru 12, 2012, was the second candidate to enter the Mayoral Contest. The first candidate being Touch 106.1 Owner and Businessman Charles Clemons.

With Dorcena eliminated, it is unknown who will benefit from his absence from the race.

If Ayanna Pressley runs for Mayor as reports are now suggesting that she may, she will undoubtably be the next Mayor.

It's a no brainer. Number one, the race is wide open for a major female candidate to run and win. There are ten men who running. Many people do vote based on gender. For instance, in the race to replace Jack Hart in the State Senate, many pundits believe that some of Nick Collin's votes will be siphered away by fellow Southie native Maureen Dahill which will allow Linda Dorcena Fory to be able to walk into office. However, I believe with two women running against Collins, the only male in the Democratic primary, many women will split their vote, while many men will vote for Collins. I'm not saying it is right, but it is a reality that gender politics is a determining factor for how many people vote in elections.
