Boston MoHos meet your New Mayor!
We have a fellow Seven Sister Sibling running this town.
Major congratulations to Smith College alum Kim Janey to be interim Boston Mayor. She will be both the first woman and first person of color to lead the great city of Boston. She will be filling the role that stands to be vacated soon by Marty Walsh, who President-elect Joe Biden has picked to serve as his Secretary of Labor.
Janey will hold office until a new mayor is inaugurated, either in November, when the city’s mayoral election is scheduled, or in a special election held before that date.
We look forward to Janey’s leadership and charisma as she takes the reins to lead Boston into the new year.
