MA: Janey Concedes Boston Mayoral Race

Source: WBUR News [US state media]

“Boston acting Mayor Kim Janey made history this year, becoming both the first woman and the first person of color to lead the city. But Janey’s tenure will likely be much shorter than she hoped …. As of about 9 a.m. Wednesday, Boston vote tallies showed a tight race between Janey, and Councilors Annissa Essaibi George and Andrea Campbell for the final general election slot against City Councilor Michelle Wu. AP declared Wu the first preliminary race winner at around 3 a.m. Wednesday. Janey issued a concession speech around midnight Wednesday, before the vast majority of vote tallies were released by the city.” (09/15/21)
