Listen: Mayoral Debate Focusing On Minority Communities

BOSTON — Boston mayoral candidates John Connolly and Marty Walsh faced off in a debate Wednesday evening that focused on issues affecting the city’s communities of color.

In the hour-long forum, state Rep. Walsh and City Councilor Connolly addressed education, the inequality gap and small business development throughout various neighborhoods.

The debate — the candidates’ third before the Nov. 5 election — was sponsored by The NAACP and the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, among other groups. It was held at Roxbury Community College and also aired later Wednesday on WBUR.
