Walsh said he was simply answering a reporter’s question.
At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Walsh did not say much more about the conversation with Wu.
“A reporter from the Globe asked me the question if I had received a call. He had heard that I got a call from the councilor and I just confirmed I did,” Walsh said. “When I say no comment to you guys and I know an answer, it’s pretty not fair to do.”
Wu has not confirmed or denied the Globe report. In a statement, Wu’s spokeswoman told WBZ, “Councilor Wu believes that in this moment of hardship in our city, each one of us should be asking ourselves how we can make a difference in strengthening our communities and fighting for change that matches the scale and urgency of our current challenges.”
