A Statement from Mayor Kim Janey

A Statement from Mayor Kim Janey


BOSTON — A statement from Mayor Kim Janey on tonight’s election results:

“I want to thank my family, friends, supporters, campaign staff, and volunteers for all the work we have done together over the past five months. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the doors that were knocked, all the calls that were made, and all the early mornings and late nights spent working to make history here in Boston.

While we are still waiting on some results, it appears that we have come up short in the election. I want to congratulate Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi-George on their victories this evening. This was a spirited and historic race, and I wish them both luck in the final election. 

While tonight hasn’t ended how we hoped, we have so much to be proud of. On the campaign side we built a multi-racial, multicultural, and multi-generational coalition committed to making Boston a more just, more equitable place to live for every single resident.

And at City Hall — as the first woman and first Black Mayor of Boston — we not only made history, but we made a difference. Crime is down, people are staying in their homes due to work we’ve done with rental assistance and an eviction moratorium, our children are safely back in school, and Boston is one of the most vaccinated big cities in America.

There is so much more we have done together in these few months that we can be proud of — that helped people of our city in their time of greatest need and set Boston on a path to an equitable reopening, recovery, and renewal.

Over the next two months, I am committed to continuing to lead Boston through these challenges — to continue to get shots in arms, keep our kids safe in school, keep our streets safe, and keep our residents housed. And I am also committed to ensuring a smooth transition for the next Mayor so that SHE will be able to hit the ground running.”
