(NECN) - Just two days after the preliminary election reduced the race for Boston mayor to a pair of candidates, the gloves came off and Marty Walsh seemed to be less than cordial.
Those words in response to Jon Connolly’s pitch that Walsh join him in taking the “People's
Pledge” to avoid taking outside money in the Boston race.
Connolly joined us in the studio to discuss the pitch and where he plans to go from here.
“We don’t want the outside money to warp this debate,” said Connolly.
He said that the candidates should talk directly to the voters about issues like school and public safety.
What does he think about Walsh’s response?
“I’m disappointed that he attacked my character, but if we signed a pledge like this, there are penalties built in if the rules are broken,” he said.
He said that he doesn’t want outside money influencing or impacting the way he talks to votes about the changes he’s like to make.
