Incumbents Anita Bonds (D, anitabonds2022.com) and Elissa Silverman (I, elissafordc.com) are competing in an eight-way contest that includes incumbent Democratic Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyon McDuffie (D, mcduffiefordc.com), who was ruled ineligible earlier this year to run for Attorney General as a Democrat.

Also running are Republican Giuseppe Niosi (niosi2022.com), Green Party candidate David Schwartzman (dcstatehoodgreen.party/candidates/David-Schwartzman) and independents Fred E. Hill (fredhill4councilatlarge.com), Karim D. Marshall (marshallfordc.com) and Graham McLaughlin (grahamfordc.com).
