Councilwoman Lucille Kring officially filed her intention to run paperwork on November 19, the first official step in running for mayor of Anaheim, allowing her to move forward and raise money for that campaign. She made her announcement on November 13.

Lorri Galloway announced she was going to run for mayor in a Frank Mickadeit column that was published on Halloween – but unlike Kring, she has taken no official steps since then to move her campaign forward.
