The already vast sea of candidates vying to become the next mayor of Boston got even wider yesterday when Charlotte Golar Richie — a former aide to Governor Deval Patrick and former chief of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development — became the the first major female candidate to enter the race. She joins 23 others who have filed for nomination papers, and with just a few weeks to gather the 3,000 signatures needed to appear on the primary ballot, the heat is on.

Guests

Peter Ubertaccio, chairman of the political science department at Stonehill College.

This segment aired on May 2, 2013.
