Table of how many candidates are running for office in each municpality

2014 is a fairly typical election year other than David Shebib running for mayor in all 13 municipalities.  We have 234 people and 246 candidates - David Shebib is why the two numbers are not equal

I may have to change this post because  I am not certain that the total numbers I have represent the final list for all of the municipalities.  I will not be 100% certain until Tuesday morning.

Here is a table breaking out how many people are running in each municipality for mayor and council, what the gender split is and finally how many of the incumbents are running again/
