This is who is running for Mayor. (update)

by Rod Williams, May 20, 2023 update. Fran Bush has now had her qualifying petition verified and is a candidate for mayor. 

by Rod Williams, May 18, 2023- The qualifying deadline to run for Mayor, Vice Mayor, and Metro Council in the August election was today at noon.  As of this posting, the last Election qualifying petition update was 11:30PM yesterday, so this may not be the final list. Someone could have turned in their petition this morning. However, this is the list of those who had turned in a petition as of last night. I will update when the final list is posted. To see the petition list, follow this link

If a candidate qualifies and then has a change of mind, they may withdraw from the race up until May 25th at noon.

This is the list as of now of who is running for Mayor. Also, I have posted links to the candidate's campaign website if I can fine it and other news about the candidate.
