A slate of JoAnn Kennedy, Helen Losak and Eric Stewart-Alicea fell short of the signatures required to wage a citywide Democratic primary for Board of Education. They needed more than 2200 certified signatures from registered Democrats in the city. That means party-endorsed Jessica Martinez, Chaila Robinson and Hernan Illingworth move on to the general election.
A city sheriff slate of Louis Lopez, Wilfredo Martinez and Frank Appleby also failed to qualify in a challenge of party-endorsed Dennis Scinto, Steve Nelson and Anderson Ayala.
It appears nine of 10 City Council districts will have primaries on September 12. See candidates below starting with party endorsed.

133: Jeanette Herron and Michael DeFilippo; Bob Keeley and Anne Pappas Phillips.
