Another candidate has been added to the Columbus mayor's race.

Selina Miller, the fourth Democrat running in the May primary, was certified as a write-in candidate by the Franklin County Board of Elections.

Miller will face fellow Democrats Andy Ginther, president of Columbus City Council; Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott; James Ragland, development director at Cristo Rey Columbus High School; and Republican Terry Boyd, a professor in the business department at Franklin University, in the nonpartisan primary.

The top two vote-getters will proceed to the general election.

In related news, the board also certified three replacement candidates running for city council. Placeholder candidates are those who essentially fill a place on a ballot while the party decides who to nominate.

Democrats Michael Stinziano, a state representative from the 18th District, and Jaiza Page, who was recently appointed to council, will replace Zach Manifold and Francine Ryan. They will join fellow Democrats Michelle Mills, an incumbent on city council; Kiwan Lawson; Will Petrik; and Doyline Williams on the primary ballot.

Republican John Christopher Rush will replace Josh Jaffe. He will join fellow Republicans Dimitrious Stanley, Ibrahima Sow and Bessa Sharrah on the primary ballot.

The top eight vote-getters will advance to the fall election.
