STEVE LeBLANC and AAMER MADHANI, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — President-elect Joe Biden announced Thursday that he has chosen Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to be his labor secretary, selecting a former union worker who shares Biden's Irish-American background and working-class roots.
Walsh, 53, has served as the Democratic mayor of Boston since 2014. When he took the oath of office in 2018 for his second term as Boston’s chief executive, Biden presided over the inauguration. Biden made the announcement hours after Walsh's selection was confirmed by two people familiar with the president-elect's decision. The people spoke on condition of anonymity before Biden's formal announcement.
