Mayor before election

Thomas Menino

Elected Mayor

Marty Walsh

The Boston mayoral election of 2013 occurred on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, between state representative Marty Walsh and city councilor John R. Connolly. Walsh was elected to his first term, and was inaugurated on Monday, January 6, 2014.[1]

38% of registered voters turned out to vote in the election.[2]

A non-partisan preliminary election was held on Tuesday, September 24, 2013.[3][4][5]

Incumbent mayor Thomas Menino had declined to run for re-election to a sixth term.

Background

Incumbent mayor Thomas Menino had held office ever since ascending to the mayoralty following the resignation of Raymond Flynn in 1993. In 2013, Menino opted against seeking what would have been his sixth elected term as mayor. He announced his decision not to seek reelection on March 27, 2013.[6]

Without an incumbent seeking reelection, this made the 2013 election the first open election since 1984, thirty years earlier.[6]
