At-Large Council member Michael Brown will be on the November ballot, having survived two petition challenges.

The Board of Elections ruled today that Brown has the 3,000 needed signatures to qualify as a candidate, dismissing challenges brought by challenger David Grosso and activist Dorothy Brizill.

In a statement, Brown scolded Grosso for doing what almost every politician does.
