Wu and Essaibi George to Square Off for Mayor in November Election

In a historic election where four women candidates of color and one male candidate of color all vied for Mayor of Boston, voters on Tuesday have narrowed the field of seven candidates down to two.

On Tuesday, Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi George finished in the top two spots and will square off in the November General election. Rounding out the election was Acting Mayor Kim Janey finishing third, Andrea Campbell came in fourth with John Barros rounding out the top spots in fifth place.

“Today, Boston voters turned out on the doors, on the phones, on the streets, and at the polls to make their voices heard,” said Wu Tuesday night. “Given the numbers reported back from precincts across our city, we are certain that our campaign — which was the first to launch in this field, exactly one year ago — will be advancing to the November general election. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

To kick off her general election campaign, Essaibi George told her supporters Tuesday night, “It’ll take all of us to move Boston forward. To bring cleaner air to Chinatown and East Boston. To bring more home ownership opportunities to Roxbury. To keep our small businesses strong in Mattapan, and thoughtful, inclusive growth to Allston. We’ll do it with an equity lens. We’ll do it thoughtfully. We’ll do it together. Nothing is off the table, when we ensure everyone is at the table.”

As of press time, the results of the At-Large field were not yet finalized but based on precincts reporting so far it looks as though Michael Flaherty, Julia Mejia, Ruthzee Louijeune, Erin Murphy,  Carla Monteiro, David Halbert, Althea Garrison, and Bridget Nee-Walsh, will advance to the city councilor at-large race in the November election.
