Boston Mayoral Election 2017 Results: Analysis

Boston tends to keep their mayors around for a long time. Walsh is the city’s sixth mayor since 1950, with the average mayor serving about three terms. It’s not that this is a lifetime appointment, but Walsh will be mayor as long as he wants it. Someday he may desire to be governor, but short of some catastrophe in his administration, he’ll have more relatively effortless campaigns.
