The race to replace Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has turned out to be the most expensive mayoral contest in Massachusetts history.
State Rep. Martin Walsh has defeated City Councilor and fellow Democrat John Connolly in a hard-fought race to succeed longtime Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.
Boston voters are heading to the polls to choose a new mayor — and for the first time in two decades Thomas Menino’s name won’t be on the ballot for the top post in a general election.
WBZ NewsWatch with Joe Mathieu returned Monday on WBZ NewsRadio 1030 with the two men running to replace Tom Menino as the next Mayor of Boston – John Connolly and Marty Walsh – as Joe’s guests.
Both John Connolly and Marty Walsh are campaigning around the city Monday, taking no votes for granted the day before the election.
Connolly says even though he has campaigned across the city as an at-large city councilor over six years, The mayor’s race is a whole different ballgame.
All things considered, the city’s mayoral race has been fairly civilized over the past six months. In the final two days before the election, all bets are off.
On Tuesday, the city will elect its first new mayor in 20 years.
There is absolutely no excuse for this potentially abysmal show of civic disinterest.
In the race for mayor of Boston, the candidates are making plenty of promises about improving programs and services.
