We know Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was just re-elected by a big margin. Look closer at the results of Boston's municipal election, though, and some provocative themes and questions start to emerge. The Scrum dove into the results at the Banshee Pub in Dorchester with a panel of media experts — Meghan Irons of the Boston Globe, Yawu Miller of the Bay State Banner, and Jennifer Smith of the Dorchester Reporter — and then took some sharp questions from the audience.
We've reached the stretch drive in Boston's mayoral race, with one Marty Walsh-Tito Jackson debate already on the books and one more slated for October 24. Adam Reilly and Peter Kadzis talk to Boston political scribe extraordinaire David Bernstein about the questions he thinks Jackson and Walsh still need to answer before voters head to the polls on November 7.
We're five weeks from electing a new mayor of Boston. This week, "The Scrum" - WGBH News' ongoing conversation about politics in Boston and across Massachusetts - looked at some of the polls in the Boston mayoral race, and how candidates John Connolly and Marty Walsh have been handling (or mishandling) controversial issues like the Boston Police Patrolmen Association's arbitration award.
