Editor’s note: The Globe is not publishing a full, front-page profile of David James Wyatt because he declined repeated efforts to be interviewed for such an article.
The moderator of a youth jobs forum had barely finished giving instructions to the five mayoral hopefuls when a sixth emerged.
“Uh, it looks like we’ve got another candidate,” the moderator said as hundreds of young attendees turned their gaze to the newcomer.
Dressed in loose-fitting khaki pants and a black blazer, David James Wyatt made his way to the candidate platform, taking a seat at the center of the table with his fellow candidates. His eyeglasses sat low on his nose as he leaned back in his chair, his arms crossed.
Moments later, in response to a question about bringing more youth jobs to the city, he began his answer the same way he begins most of his public responses.
“Well, I’m a Republican, and a conservative, as one would expect a Republican to be,” Wyatt said with a sigh and a shrug. “I am also 100 percent prolife.”
