          (Boston Orange 編譯) 波士頓代市長Kim Janey(24)日和2名波士頓市長大選候選人Annissa Essaibi George和吳弭(Michelle Wu)在市長官邸柏文屋(Parkman House)晤談,協定1116日交接。

波士頓代市長Kim Janey強調,從他接任市長職位的第一天到最後一天,波士頓居民的是否安好都是她的最優先考慮。她說,,「現在就和吳弭及Essaibi George談,可以確保新市長接任時,就已做好準備,工作第一天就能因應波士頓居民的顧慮」。

           Kim Janey是在前市長馬丁華殊奉派出任美國勞工部部長後,於今年(2021)324日,宣誓就任為波士頓市第55任市長,也成為波士頓市有史以來第一位黑人女市長。

              波士頓市長職位的交接需依照市府憲章辦理。根據條文,新市長應在選舉結果認證後宣誓就任,也就是在112日的選舉過後,一直到1112日下午5點,有10天申訴期,一旦波士頓選務局確認無人要求重新計票後,就會在1115日辦理選舉結果認證,然後1116日就可交接了。

         波士頓代市長Kim Janey將和2名市長決選候選人一起討論行政,以為1116日的交接做準備。Kim Janey預定於10月中先把市府部門的一般結構及營運概要資料,交給2名市長候選人。市府各部門將待候任市長人選確認後再開始做部門簡報。

MAYOR JANEY HOSTS MEETING WITH COUNCILORS ESSAIBI GEORGE AND WU TO SET BOSTON MAYORAL TRANSITION DATE

City Councilors briefed on preparations for incoming city administration

 

BOSTON - Friday, September 24, 2021 - Boston Mayor Kim Janey met Thursday with Boston City Councilors and mayoral candidates Annissa Essaibi George and Michelle Wu at the Parkman House to discuss the transition timeline for the next Mayor of Boston. The leaders agreed on a transfer of power on November 16, 2021, following the municipal election on November 2, 2021. The talks mark the first step in a smooth transition to a new city administration.

“From my first to my last day as mayor, the wellbeing of Boston’s residents has remained my top priority,” said Mayor Janey. “Starting these conversations with Councilors Wu and Essaibi George now helps ensure the new mayor will be ready to do her job and address the concerns of Boston’s residents on day one.”

Mayor Janey was sworn-in as the 55th Mayor of Boston on March 24, 2021, making history as the city’s first woman and first Black mayor, after former Mayor Marty Walsh was appointed U.S. Secretary of Labor. 

Timing for the City of Boston mayoral transition is dictated by statute. This provision establishes that a new mayor be sworn-in after election results are certified. Following the election, there is a required ten day recount petition period during which results cannot be certified. The close of the recount petition period is Nov. 12, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. If a recount is not requested, Boston’s Board of Election Commissioners will certify the results on Monday, November 15, 2021 allowing for the transition to take place on November 16, 2021. Mayor Janey will complete her term following certification of the November 2, 2021 election results. Councilors Wu and Essaibi George agreed to November 16th as the target date for the transition to Boston’s next mayor.

To prepare for the November 16th transfer of power, Mayor Janey will lead administrative discussions with both Councilors Wu and Essaibi George. In mid-October, the Councilors will receive summaries of the general structure and operation of City departments. More detailed department briefings will follow in early November, once the mayor-elect has been determined.
