Ward II Alderman Michelle Harris and former Clayton Plan Commission Chair Harold Sanger also have said they will run for mayor in April.
Harris launched a Twitter feed in May, @MHarris4Clayton, and her handle received a mention Friday from St. Louis publicist Jane Higgins.
"Very happy @MHarris4Clayton is running 4 Mayor! She's fresh! She DOES what she says she's going to do! I'm ready to help," Higgins wrote via her Twitter handle, @jcbhiggins.
Sanger updated his LinkedIn profile in June to reflect his mayoral bid.
"I am running for the Mayor of Clayton in April 2013," Sanger wrote. "My campaign will be kicking off in the coming months, stay tuned."
