BOSTON (AP) - Community organizer Bill Walczak is the seventh person to announce a bid for Boston mayor.

Walczak told The Boston Globe on Saturday that he wants to make sure Boston "continues to be a great city."

The 58-year-old Walczak co-founded the Codman Square Health Center in the city's Dorchester section in 1975. He is president and co-founder of the Codman Academy Charter Public School and vice president at Shawmut Design and Construction.

Walczak says he has not yet fully developed a platform.

Mayor Thomas Menino announced last month that he would not seek a sixth term. The other candidates are Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley; city councilors John R. Connolly and Rob Consalvo; state Rep. Martin J. Walsh; newspaper publisher Will Dorcena; and radio station co-founder Charles Clemons.
