Charlotte Golar Richie scores endorsement of former ambassador

In front of the dozens of people crammed into her Roxbury campaign office, Charlotte Golar Richie delivered an impassioned and confident speech this afternoon in which she addressed criticism of her campaign and confidently declared that she will be Boston’s next mayor.

The address, given over the excited “Charlotte!” chants of her supporters, came just moments after the former state representative received a fresh batch of endorsements from Charles Stith, former US Ambassador to Tanzania; Richard Taylor, a who was Massachusetts’ secretary of transportation under Governor William F. Weld; and Sarah Ann Shaw, the first African-American female television journalist to appear on Boston’s airwaves.
