Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson says he won't announce a decision on whether he will challenge Mayor Marty Walsh until spring.
Jackson told The Boston Herald that he is considering a run for the position, but will wait until later this year to make it official.
A website titled titojacksonformayor.com has already been registered, and Jackson’s team recently brought on board Bill Hyers, the campaign manager for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Jackson is a lifelong resident of Roxbury and has served on the Boston City Council since 2011. As the District 7 councilor, he represents all of Roxbury and parts of the South End, Dorchester and Fenway neighborhoods.
Walsh, a native of Dorchester, was first elected mayor back in 2014. Before that, he served as a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
