New PAC spends $480,000 on Walsh’s behalf

A newly formed political committee that is not required to immediately disclose its donors has spent $480,000 on a major television advertising buy days before the mayoral election on behalf of state Representative Martin J. Walsh, according to a report filed this week with the state.

The political action committee, One Boston, is not obliged to identify its financial backers until January, after voters cast ballots in this Tuesday’s election. The only name listed on the committee’s paperwork is Jocelyn Hutt, a 55-year-old woman from Congreve Street in Roslindale. She has not voted in three of Boston’s past four municipal elections, according to city records.
