Monday is the last day of Acting Boston Mayor Kim Janey's tenure in office. Tuesday, Michelle Wu will be sworn in, and at that point, all eyes will be on her to see if she can deliver on the many big, bold promises she made during the campaign. We take a deep look at the historic nature of Janey's time in office, what it has meant for the city of Boston, and what incoming Mayor Wu will face. We hear from WBUR reporters Callum Borchers and Anthony Brooks, and Boston Globe culture columnist Jeneé Osterheldt.

This segment aired on November 15, 2021.
