There will be no competitive City Council races for most residents living in the Mission Hill area to vote on during the City’s preliminary election Sept. 8.
District 8 City Councilor Josh Zakim, who represents most of Mission Hill, is running unopposed during the preliminary and general elections.
Some residents who live in a triangle of area formed by Huntington Avenue and Parker Street near Sweeney Field will be voting on the District 7 race on Sept. 8. City Councilor Tito Jackson faces five challengers for the District 7 seat: Charles Clemons, Kevin Dwire, Haywood Fennell, Althea Garrison and Roy Owens.
Meanwhile, there are only five candidates for the At-Large City Council race. That means there will not be a preliminary election for that race and all candidates will appear on the November ballot. The top four vote getters receive a seat on the Council. The candidates are Annisa Essaibi George, Current At-Large City Councilors Stephen Murphy, Michael Flaherty, Ayanna Pressley and Michelle Wu.
