Who's Running For Election in Columbus, Ohio?
#BlackVotersMatter2023 Election Coverage
UnBossed! Nightly News host, DaVante' Goins was the only journalist at the Franklin County Board of Elections on February 1st, when petitions to be on the ballot were due.
As a result, our cameras were rolling when multiple candidates came through to submit, and DaVante' had the opportunity to speak with a few candidates.
In this report, DaVante' breaks down who submitted petitions to be on the ballot for Columbus Mayor and Columbus City Council races, along with the submissions that the Board of Elections certified on Monday, February 13th, to advance to the general election.
The race for City Council, only two of nine candidates have an opponent in the nine new residential districts they will compete in for the first time. Districts four and five will have opponents.
For District Four, the matchup will be incumbent City Councilmember Emmanuel Remy vs. Retired Sergeant Adrienne Hood.
District Five matchup will be incumbent City Councilmember Nick Bankston vs. Business Owner Farxaan Jeyte.
It's important to note that only one Council member can be elected from each district, but — unlike a ward — voters citywide can vote for all nine seats.
