Tom MacMillan, leader of the Portland Green Party, has submitted voter signatures in his bid to become Portland’s next mayor.

MacMillan, a native Portlander and a longtime resident, works in special education.

He is running, in part, based on his role to place a question on the November ballot asking residents to raise the local minimum wage to $15 per hour.

He is the second to submit nomination papers, after Mayor Michael Brennan submitted his papers this week. Ethan Strimling, who lost to Brennan in 2011, has announced his run but has not yet submitted his signatures.

Other than Strimling, there are five potential candidates who still have until Aug. 25 to complete the nomination process. They are: Chris Vail, Zouhair A. Bouzrara, Benjamin J. Culver, Brendan Glass and Karl Nordli. City Councilor Ed Suslovic had taken out papers, but said Tuesday following Strimling’s announcement that he will not run.
