D.C. Councilmember David Catania is the latest local official to signal his intention to run for mayor.

Catania filed paperwork Wednesday to form an exploratory committee for a mayoral bid. That means he can start raising money.

Catania is an independent, which means he would face the Democratic primary winner in the general election. Mayor Vincent Gray is seeking re-election, and four councilmembers are running against him in the primary.

Former councilmember Sharon Ambrose is chairing the committee and says Catania is "very likely" to run.

Ambrose says Catania understands how an influx of young parents has changed the city and that education is the key issue in the election. Catania chairs the council's education committee and has pushed legislation aimed at reducing inequities for poor students.
