BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City Councilwoman Shannon Sneed will run for city council president.

The current District 13 councilwoman has been representing parts of east Baltimore since 2016.

As of Thursday, no candidates have officially filed paperwork to run for the seat, but District 7 councilman Leon Pinkett posted on Facebook last month he was also running.

Incumbent city council president Brandon Scott is running for mayor.

Only one candidate, Raymond Wallace David, a Democrat, has filed paperwork to run for Sneed’s current seat.
