Community organizer Walczak to run for mayor

After a morning meeting with a group of friends and advisers, longtime community organizer Bill Walczak told the Globe today that he will run for mayor of Boston.

A 40-year Boston resident and cofounder of the Codman Square Health Center, Walczak becomes the fifth major declared candidate in the race to replace 20-year Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who announced last month that he will not seek a sixth term.
