Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey endorsed Boston Mayor Marty Walsh in his bid for re-election on Saturday, praising his commitment to protect Boston’s environment while working to create a cleaner and more sustainable future for the city.
“Mayor Walsh has shown over his four years that he is a fighter for all Bostonians. Under Mayor Walsh, Boston is leading the way on becoming a cleaner, more energy efficient city and I know over his next four years, Mayor Walsh will continue to show that when Boston leads on climate action, other cities follow," Senator Markey said. "Marty Walsh has worked tirelessly to create a Boston where everyone can get ahead and I am proud to endorse him.”
Mayor Walsh said he is proud to have Senator Markey's endorsement.
Walsh, seeking his second four-year term, is being challenged by City Councilor Tito Jackson, who has represented Boston's Roxbury neighborhood since 2011.
Voters head to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
