Blackstonian has the lists of candidates who appear to have filed enough valid signatures to get on the ballot this fall.
Althea Garrison, who runs unsuccessfully every year for some office in Roxbury, has broadened her sights this year: She looks set to make the ballot as one of eight candidates for the four at-large city-council seats. If the number stays at eight, that means incumbents Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, Michael Flaherty and Annissa Essaibi-George will skip a preliminary in September and go straight into the November final against Garrison, Domingos DaRosa of Hyde Park, William King of Dorchester and Pat Payaso of Roxbury.
Marty Walsh and Tito Jackson will have no such luck in their race for mayor - Joseph Wiley and Robert Cappucci, both of East Boston, are enough to force a mayoral preliminary in September to narrow the field down to two.
In district council races, three people qualified for the District 1 seat Sal LaMattina is giving up, six candidates seem to have gotten on the ballot for the District 2 seat Bill Linehan is retiring from and 13 candidates will make a go for the District 7 seat Jackson is giving up to run for mayor. Among the 13 - perennial also-ran Roy Owens, making yet another bid to finish at the bottom of the results.
Incumbent Councilors Josh Zakim (District 8) and Mark Ciommo (District 9) will face competition. Councilors Frank Baker (District 3), Matt O'Malley (6) and Tim McCarthy (5) appear not to have any competition.
One person not on the ballot for anything is Doug Bennett.
