Let’s take a closer look at the North End neighborhood and surrounding precincts in Tuesday’s election that made Marty Walsh the next Mayor of Boston. Walsh took the overall city vote with 51.6% of the vote, but most of Downtown Boston favored John Connolly.
Here is how the North End voted in the race for Mayor and City Council:
- Boston Mayor: 63% of the North End voted for John Connolly versus 37% for Marty Walsh.
- District 1 City Councilor: 82% of the North End voted to re-elect Sal LaMattina over Brian Gannon.
- City Councilor At-Large: Michael Flaherty topped the ticket in the North End with 1,258 votes but Michelle Wu was only 11 votes behind in second place. Rounding out the winning totals for the four open seats were Stephen Murphy and Ayanna Pressley. Not making the at-large cut were Jeffrey Michael Ross, Jack Kelly, Annissa Essaibi George and Martin Keogh.
