Elected Mayor

John B. Hynes

The Boston mayoral election of 1949 occurred on Tuesday, November 8, 1949, between incumbent Mayor of Boston James Michael Curley, city clerk and former acting mayor John B. Hynes, and three other candidates. Hynes was elected to his first term.

Boston voters also approved changing the structure of future mayoral contests to include a preliminary election, to select two final candidates in advance of each general election.[1] The first such election was set for 1951, meaning that Hynes would only serve a two-year term, rather than a four-year term.[1]

Hynes was inaugurated on Monday, January 2, 1950.[2]
