BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Mayor Kim Janey, who was appointed acting mayor after former Mayor Marty Walsh left City Hall to join the Biden Administration as labor secretary, is hoping that her accomplishments during her time at City Hall will earn her a spot on the general election ballot in November.

As results trickled in at a slow pace Janey and her team left their supporters in the South End Tuesday night to wait out the official results.

Janey, who cast her vote at the Boys & Girls Club in West Roxbury, has been serving as mayor as the Delta variant has surged across the city.

The fourth-generation Roxbury resident has spoken about the need to reform the Boston Police Department and creating equitable educational opportunities for all students.
