Holmes announced his bid for a fourth term in early February, and for the months that followed, he appeared to largely be running unopposed. Davison and Thomas-Kennedy threw their hats in the ring just before the city’s late-May filing deadline.

Davison cites the need “to have a sense of public safety” as one of her primary reasons for deciding to run for public office for the third time in as many years.

On Thomas-Kennedy’s campaign website, she outlines her priorities to decriminalize drugs and sex work, defund the police department, tax the wealthy, and end the prosecution of misdemeanors committed from “circumstances of poverty.”
