Meet The Boston Mayoral Candidates

On Nov. 5, Boston will elect its first new mayor in 20 years. See below for biographies and profiles of the two final candidates, City Councilor John Connolly and state Rep. Martin Walsh. And see here for our square-by-square series, and here for our full race coverage.

NOTES: We’ve updated this post after the preliminary election winnowed the field of candidates from 12 to two; those 10 other candidates can be found below Connolly and Walsh. Information was provided by the candidates’ campaigns, and compiled by Erika Lantz.
