Michelle Wu has become the first women mayor to be elected in Boston after voters casted their ballots on Tuesday. She received 60% of votes over Aninissa Essaibi George who is a city councilor. Both candidates are officially democratic and the race was nonpartisan.

Ms. Wu said during her victory speech, “Were ready to be a Boston that doesn’t push people out, but welcomes all who call our city home. Were ready to be a Boston where all can afford to stay and to thrive.”

Earlier this year, Mayor Kim Janey was elected as the first black female to take the position after succeeding Marty Wash who went on to become U.S Labor Secretary. On the other hand, New Yorkers elected Eric Adams as their new Major over republican Curtis Sliwa who is also a founder of the Guardian Angels anticrime group.
