In the first open mayoral race in twenty years, Dorchester state representative Marty Walsh edged City Councilor John Connolly in a close contest.
MAHA congratulates Mayor-elect Walsh and looks forward to working with him on implementing the responsible banking ordinance recently passed by the City Council and other issues impacting low and moderate income homebuyers and homeowners.
Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, Michael Flaherty, and Steve Murphy were the winners in the City Council at-large race.
By this time tomorrow, Boston will have its first new mayor in 20 years. Who do you want it to be - John Connolly or Marty Walsh? Cast your vote before 8:00 PM tonight!
There are also 8 people running for 4 City Councilor At-Large seats. You can vote for up to 4 of them. District councilors who represent each section of the city will also be on the ballot.
Remember: No one knows who you vote for, but everyone knows who votes. Politicians keep track of which individuals vote consistently, and which neighborhoods have the highest turn out. So don't give up the power and influence you gain by voting! Then work together through MAHA and other organizations to hold the winning candidates accountable for delivering on their campaign promises.
