It's been a pretty rough stretch for Marty Walsh. In recent days, the Boston mayor has seen his name linked to a federal labor probe in the pages of The Boston Globe; watched the Grand Prix of Boston, an event he staunchly supported, go up in smoke; and—last but definitely not least—battled the incredibly painful scourge of kidney stones.
What does Walsh's bad week and a half tell us about his mayoralty? And might it be enough to get some intrepid would-be challenger to challenge Walsh in the next mayoral election?
Scrum regulars Adam Reilly and Peter Kadzis kicked those (and other!) questions around with Meghan Irons, who covers Boston City Hall for the Globe, and Lauren Dezenski, who writes Politico's Massachusetts Playbook. Take a listen—and when you're done, leave a comment letting us know whether you think Walsh's bad stretch matters or not.
