Incumbent Mayor Thomas Menino won 51% of the vote and fellow city council member Michael Flaherty won 24% of the vote. Now, Menino and Flaherty will battle it out in November in the general election. Flaherty still has a big uphill battle to defeat Menino, who has run Boston for sixteen years and is likely to run it for another four.
Given his relatively short time in the Boston politics, Yoon made a remarkable and commendable effort. I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear of Sam Yoon.
