The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports that Alex Gray, currently a policy analyst at City Hall, will run for one of the four open at-large seats on the City Council in next year's elections.
If elected, Gray would be the first blind city councilor.
Also running is community activist Domingos DaRosa, who has run for the seat before.
Over the weekend, DaRosa helped organize a trip up to Gov. Baker's house in Swampscott, where he left a collection of used needles he'd found along Methadone Mile, to try to get the governor to do something about that area.
At least one incumbent at-large incumbent, Michelle Wu, won't be running next year, because she is running for mayor.
