Martin Walsh Wins Boston Mayoral Election

This year’s mayoral election for Boston was the closest race in recent memory for many citizens of the great bay city. When previous Mayor Thomas Menino would run for office, he was the clear winner from the get-go. This year’s election caused more of a stir in the community.

Campaigners were out on the streets at daybreak with large signs proudly emblazoned with their candidates names. The race for City Council representatives were also hot on the hunt for voters. Each candidate was supported passionately through campaign signs – held high by supporters competing in size and prominence near City Hall and along main sidewalks. Teams of interns and volunteers also made campaign calls from sunrise to sunset until the polls officially closed.

After all the madness, here are the results of the 2013 Boston Mayoral and Councillor District Elections.
