Both rivals promise inclusive mayoralty

Boston’s two candidates for mayor pledged Wednesday night that their administrations would be more representative of the city, with about half of appointees being people of color. They also promised to bring jobs to struggling neighborhoods and to move aggressively to close the achievement gap between students.

In the third face-off of their campaign, state Representative Martin J. Walsh and Councilor at Large John R. Connolly sat beside each other, agreeing that there are too many inequities in communities of color, compared with the rest of the city.
