Yancey: Definitely running for mayor

City Councilor Charles Yancey said today that while his name will be on the September ballot in Dorchester twice - once for city council, once for mayor - he will be spending all his time between now and then running for mayor.

Following an education forum at the BPL in Copley Square, Yancey said he is running a citywide campaign for mayor and that he will not actively campaign for the District 4 seat he has held since 1984. He said he's just doing the same thing a number of other candidates across the country have long done when they seek higher office.

Steven Godfrey of Roslindale and Divo Rodrigues Monteiro and Terrance J. Williams of Dorchester will be on the ballot for city council in District 4 this September.

Owen. As in 0-2, that's what I'm hoping for with Yancey's prospects.

Now, does anyone have a list of Yancey's solid accomplishments over his 29.5-year tenure on the Boston City Council?

The post is about a guy running for mayor and city councilor in Dorchester, not the Back Bay/Beacon Hill/sliver of Cambridge state rep's race. But you knew that, right?
