The only mayoral candidate with an official campaign theme song is now the only candidate with an official music video.

On Thursday, City Councilor Rob Consalvo released the an online music video for “Starts with a Spark,” the hip-hop song by Dorchester-based artist Maestro Z.O.O.M. that the candidate has made the theme song of his campaign.

The video features footage of the candidate walking in a recent parade and of supports waving signs bearing his “All In” campaign slogan. The 1:43-minute track outlines Consalvo’s background as a councilor and outlines some of his stances.


Here is a sample of some of the song’s lyrics:

Vote Consalvo for mayor, he’s a man about the action

Elected five times cause the people saw the vision,

Mayor Menino’s stepping down, so Rob made the decision,

To step up to the plate, and make the transition,

From his City Council seat, to the city’s lead position

Strong on education, and also was the author

Of the Bill for John’s Law, and made the push for ShotSpotter

A vote for Consalvo’s like a passing of the torch

So let’s bring it to fruition on Sept. 24th.
