In just four weeks, Boston voters will elect a new mayor for the first time in 20 years. The latest Suffolk University-Boston Herald poll shows City Councilor John Connolly running ahead of State Rep Marty Walsh by seven points — 41 to 34 percent.

But more than 20 percent of voters say they are still undecided, so the candidates are working hard to win them over. Over the coming days, we’re going to be catching up with both candidates — beginning today with John Connolly — and his plan to promote economic development in Grove Hall.
