The official end to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's first 100 days in office came Tuesday — on the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. In a way, the coincidence speaks to the chaotic, unpredictable nature of the mayor's job. Mayor Walsh has already dealt with two major snowstorms, a St. Patrick's Day controversy and the death of two firefighters.

But Wednesday — the mayor's 101st day in office — Walsh met with reporters to talk about his term in City Hall so far.
