Felix Arroyo expected to join race for Boston mayor

Councilor plans statement today

Councilor at Large Felix G. ­Arroyo is expected to launch a bid for mayor of Boston on Tuesday, say two people close to the campaign, making him the first Latino candidate to run for the office in a city where race and politics have a complicated and combustible history.

Arroyo is scheduled to make the announcement at 10 a.m. at the headquarters of Service Employees International Union Local 615, where he served as political director before winning a City Council seat. His campaign issued a press advisory for the event, saying he would disclose his plans for the mayor’s race.
