April Update to the 2017 City of Cincinnati Council Candidates

This month we didn't have anyone new announce and I've not heard of anyone dropping out, but we did get the Democratic endorsements announced with mostly the expected candidates getting the nod.  Leslie Jones was a surprise, as a first time candidate, but still got the backing of the local party.  The GOP still only has two announced candidates and I've not see a formal endorsement announcement, but have heard support from local party officials.  With the Mayoral Primary coming up next week, more attention will fall on the council race and if there will be any GOP or Charter candidates endorsement announcements.  At this rate, there is not even enough conservative candidates running to block a veto proof majority for the Democratic Party, so will anyone else step up?

P.G. Sittenfeld (D endorsed)
