The city clerk listed three new candidates filing for office Friday: 

Denis McComb has taken out papers for mayor, bypassing the signature-in-lieu option and paying the $150 filing fee. 

Toya Groves, an Oakland school district teacher who advocated to preserve Kandy’s carwash at Sacramento Street and Ashby Avenue and was a member of the Ashby BART task force, is running for school board. 

Clydis Ruth Rogers has taken out papers for the Rent Stabilization Board. She is on the staff of Berkeley Youth Alternatives and on the bard of Affordable Housing Associates.
