Here we go. Plenty of potential City Council primary action for September. Challengers to endorsed Democrats are circulating petition signatures in eight of ten districts. They must secure validated signatures from five percent of respective district Democrats to qualify.
High profile battles include Districts 131 (South End, Downtown, West End) where incumbents Denese Taylor-Moye and Jorge Cruz are endorsed; 137 (East Side) endorsed Rosa Franco and Elsie Mercado against incumbents City Council President Aidee Nieves and Maria Valle; and 138 (Upper East Side) incumbent Samia Suliman and Kevin Monks against incumbent Maria Pereira and Michele Small and Tony Barr and Michaela Barr-Brant.
