Boston Mayor Walsh Delivers His Final State Of The City Address

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh delivered his final State of the City address Tuesday night. Last week, he accepted the nomination to become President-Elect Joe Biden’s Labor Secretary.

Mayor Walsh delivered the speech virtually live from the newly renovated Roxbury Branch of the Boston Public Library. He spoke about the pandemic.

“We must keep drawing our strength — and on each other. Recovery won’t be easy. The virus will be with us for much of the year. The economic impacts will continue as well,” Walsh said. “The economic impacts will continue as well. There will be more hard decisions to make. Whatever happens, I know one thing: Boston will stay true to our values. We believe in keeping each other safe. We believe in caring for those who are vulnerable. We believe justice and opportunity are for everyone.”

He went on to speak about how he is leaving his job to become the Secretary of Labor.

“I’m not going to Washington alone. I’m bringing Boston with me. This city is not just my home town, it’s my heart,” Walsh said.
