Martin Walsh basks in glow after election victory

A tired but triumphant Martin J. Walsh basked in the glow Wednesday of his hard-fought victory in the Boston mayoral race, with applause greeting him at stops across the city as he began his transition to power.

City department heads clapped when Walsh arrived at the end of retiring Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s weekly Cabinet meeting. His fellow legislators saluted Walsh, a 16-year veteran of the State House, where Democrats and Republicans pulled him in for hugs and lauded him with speeches and standing ovations.
