The Boston mayoral election of 2009 occurred on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, between incumbent Mayor of Boston Thomas Menino, and Michael F. Flaherty, member of the Boston City Council and former Council president. Menino was re-elected to a fifth term, the first mayor to do so in Boston history.

31% of registered voters turned out to vote in the election.[1][2]

The nonpartisan municipal preliminary election was held on September 22, 2009.


After the preliminary election, Flaherty and fellow-Councillor Sam Yoon, who had finished third, declared they had formed a ticket. If Flaherty were victorious, he vowed to appoint Yoon deputy mayor, a position that had not existed in Boston since the administration of Kevin White, who left office in 1984.[3] Details of the position, including salary, were never finalized.
