City Councilor Michelle Wu will become Boston’s next mayor after her more moderate challenger conceded, CNN projects, making her the first woman and person of color elected to the top post in the city’s history.
“From every corner of our city, Boston has spoken. We are ready to meet this moment. We are ready to become a Boston for everyone,” Wu said to a crowd of supporters Tuesday night. “I want to be clear, it wasn’t my vision on the ballot, it was ours, together.”
City Councilor Annissa Essaibi George conceded the Boston mayoral race with a large share of the vote still waiting to be counted.
“I want to offer a great big congratulations to Michelle Wu,” Essaibi George said to a crowd of supporters at her election night party. “She’s the first woman and first Asian American elected to be mayor of Boston.”
Wu is set to succeed acting mayor Kim Janey, Boston’s first Black and female mayor. Janey, then-City Council President, was next in line to lead the city when Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was named President Joe Biden’s Labor secretary in January.
In the weeks leading up to the election, polls consistently showed Wu with a clear lead over Essaibi George, also a woman of color.
