Here is an updated list of candidates. The GOP still only has two officially named candidates, 1 reported candidate and Smitherman, so they are far from even pretending to get a majority on council. If everyone on this list runs for office, that will make 25. That is not a record. It would be a record low for Republicans.
Ozie Davis III
If anyone has any other names please send them my way (firstname.lastname@example.org) or if anyone named above wants to confirm they are not running, I'll remove them future postings of this list.
