A new video highlights some of the first year of accomplishments of Walsh Administration.

One year ago, Mayor Martin J. Walsh took the stage at Boston College to address the City for the first time as Mayor of Boston. He outlined his priorities for his first year with a promise to listen, learn, and lead. With this vision the Walsh administration - 18,000 employees strong - and the citizens of Boston got to work. Today, Mayor Walsh released a video highlighting some of the ways the administration has delivered on the Mayor’s priorities in the last year.

“I am so proud to be Mayor of Boston, a City that is thriving, healthy, and innovative,” said Mayor Walsh. “I’ve listened and I’ve learned from every interaction – from the most joyful moments to the deepest tragedies. We’ve patched thousands of potholes, recruited nationally to fill top leadership positions, expanded diversity across our workforce, improved permitting, and extended the school day– just to name a few of our successes. In year two we are not slowing down -- our focused work will continue.”
