Two more candidates file to run for Baltimore mayor

Seven people are now running for mayor of Baltimore

Two more candidates have filed to run for mayor of Baltimore.

Richard Black, an accountant, filed this week to run as a Democrat. According to his website, his campaign will focus on "reducing the tax burden for our hardworking taxpayers, streamlining government, and pushing for reforms that will increase opportunity and financial prosperity for all."

Collins Otonna, an independent, also filed to run this week. Otonna will need to gather more than 4,000 signatures from registered Baltimore voters to get on the ballot.

The two filings bring the number of candidates in the race to seven.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and former Mayor Sheila Dixon, both Democrats, have announced their campaigns.

Others running include Mack Clifton and Calvin Young, both Democrats, and Connor Meek, who is unaffiliated with a political party.
