Rob Consalvo targets outside spending in Boston mayor’s race

Councilor Rob Consalvo called on other candidates running for mayor Wednesday to form a pact limiting outside money and third-party advertisements in the race to succeed Mayor Thomas M. ­Menino.

Consalvo proposed what he dubbed the Boston Pledge to discourage political action committees, advo­cacy organizations, labor unions, and other outside groups from spending money on behalf of candidates. The pledge would include advertisements on television, radio, online, and telephone solicitations.
