‘That choice is very clear’: Boston Globe endorses Michelle Wu for mayor

October 25, 2021
The Boston Globe, the city’s oldest and largest daily newspaper, announced that it is endorsing City Councilor Michelle Wu in the Boston mayoral race.
Endorsement: The Boston Globe Editorial Board published the endorsement announcement online on Oct. 22.
  • “In this election, that choice is very clear: The Globe endorses at-large City Councilor Michelle Wu of Roslindale, the first-place finisher in the preliminary election who has both an expansive vision for the city’s next chapters and a proven record of ethical leadership,” the Editorial Board wrote.
  • The Editorial Board stated that the Globe decided to endorse the 36-year-old due to her proposals to create a “greener, more equitable city,” and cited her desire for police department reform, mass transit development and environment and traffic congestion fixes.
  • The Boston Globe previously endorsed Andrea Campbell back in September, but Campbell did not pass the preliminary election.
