There could be a race for city council in South Boston, South End, Chinatown and downtown

Frank Ulip

A downtown resident has registered a formal campaign organization with state elections officials.

Frank Ulip says he will run for the District 2 seat now held by Bill Linehan of South Boston. Linehan has yet to say if he'll be running for re-election this fall. The city does not release formal petitions for collecting signatures until May.

Ulip is an analyst at Fort Point's Clavis Insight, a startup focusing on cloud services for businesses. He lists keeping Boston competitive as a key issue in his impending campaign:

The increased presence of jobs that require STEM skills is going to continue to drive innovation and growth all across the country. The changes impacting our city will put pressure on educational institutions, on transportation, and on housing. This means not only do we need new solutions on how to foster an environment that attracts top tier talent, but also solutions to help make Boston the a global leader in innovation.

Another District 2 resident - Peter Lin-Marcus of Chinatown - has also registered a campaign with the state.

Lin-Marcus, who lives in Chinatown, is director at the Lean Force, a Brookline-based corporate fitness-training corporation.

Yes, but Corey hasn't filed with OCPF or "formally" announced, yet.

It looks like he filed on 2/22. He won't get in, and after his Boston 2024 stuff I'm happy he won't.

My thoughts are it's going to be Flynn or Kelley. Their names are familiar and they're democrats. An independent won't make it into the position and Frank Ulip hasn't declared a political party in his OCPF filing.

"Lean" and "top-tier" are two of my unfavorite words. I guess these candidates wouldn't want Boston to provide homes for anyone who is middle-tier or slightly overweight or unattractive or anything.

Ask a favorite Candidate... will you advocate release of the Stenographic Record of Public Meetings of Boston City Council for ESL English Second Language folks, for hard of hearing folks, for all folks?
