Boston Mayor’s Race Has Few Ads, Divided Interests
In the first wide-open Boston mayoral race in 20 years, the airwaves have been largely silent ahead of the general election.
Three ads have been released so far, and they are not that impressive. John Connolly’s campaign released an ad last Monday featuring his wife, Meg and focusing on education.
Last Thursday, the Environmental League of Massachusetts waded into the mayoral race with a web ad, but did not even name the candidates, let alone tip its hand in support of one or the other.
And on Friday, the American Working Families Super PAC, which is a pro-union group, posted an online ad touting Marty Walsh with the Dropkick Murphys.
