Boston Mayor’s Race: And then there were 15

With the recent reports of Will Dorcena becoming the first casualty failing to reach the 3,000 signature deadline, the field for Boston Mayor has been narrowed again. Out of the original 24 candidates for Mayor of Boston only 16 turned in the required minimum of 3,000 signatures to continue in the race.  Dorcena’s departure leaves 15 in the race. The field will continue to shrink over the next few weeks as signatures are “verified” removing duplicates and checking voter status, leaving only valid signatures and valid candidates.

Here is a graphic of all 24 original contenders indicating who got eliminated.
Eliminated on May 21st deadline first round marked with Red X.
Eliminated after May 21st deadline; during signature verification process marked with Blue X.
