As a staunch diversity advocate and someone who is fanatical about voting I urge EVERY eligible voter in Boston to cast your ballot in the mayoral and city council Primary Election on Tuesday September 24, 2013. Never before in the history of Boston has there been 12 candidates for mayor, including 6 of the 12 people of color including one woman! They are all would-be hopefuls, in their quest to replace the successful 20 year record setting leadership of Mayor Tom Menino. (He announced that he would not run for a sixth term in office last March, 2013.)
If you know someone in Boston, share this video with them. If you don't live in Boston, make sure that YOU are a registered vote and vote in every election in your city or town.
This is one of the tips in my book: 21 Ways to Bring Multiculturalism To Your Job Your Home And Your Community.

2013 started with a surprising announcement from the chief of one of America’s great cities. On March 28th Thomas Menino, announced that after 20 years and much consternation he would step down at the end of the year and not run for a sixth term in office. The mayor since 1993, Menino became Boston’s longest serving mayor, pushing and prodding the city from its provincial roots into one of the most ethnically diverse and globally connected cities in America.
Big shoes to fill indeed. And not a moment passed before 24 would be replacements stepped up, filled out preliminary paperwork and announced their candidacy for mayor of America‘ 21st largest city...and the largest city in New England.
That 24 was cut in half by the time required citizen signatures were gathered and requirements were met. And now there are 12 candidates all vying to fill the shoes of a Mayor so rooted in this metro area.
Today we’ll profile all 12 candidates and one in particular: City Councilor Charles Yancey. Earlier this summer we interviewed Charlotte Golar Richie..and my goal is to upload audio clips of all 12 candidates by the September 24th Primary.
It’s election time again, and we’re digging deep into Boston politics as we showcase the men and one woman who want to be the next mayor of Boston.
