If City Councilor Frank Baker (Dorchester) runs for re-election this fall, he'll have completion: Stephen McBride, who says he believes in "a bold, progressive Boston."
The Beacon Hill Times reports on endorsements of mayoral candidate Andrea Campbell, including one by former state Rep Marty Walz.
The Dorchester Reporter reports that Munim Khan of West Roxbury has filed papers with the state to run for an at-large council seat.
The Reporter also reports Boston state representatives met Monday to discuss how to get passage of a bill that would let Boston bypass a special election for mayor this year should Marty Walsh resign to become labor secretary. State Rep. Chynah Tyler is expected to formally introduce the bill to let Boston only hold two mayoral elections - a preliminary and the final - instead of the four that would otherwise be required by the city charter.
