The New York Times says the Democratic Party has a choice: Swagger or Michelle Wu.
Unlike the "nightlife" mayor, Michelle Wu, the mayor of Boston, tends to avoid ribbon cuttings and other public appearances in order to focus on projects and be with her family.
The article actually compares Wu favorably to New York's "nightlife" mayor, Eric Adams, and says less macho swagger BS might not be such a bad thing.
But, of course, it then adds a caveat, saying some of Wu's success might be due to the fact we're really just a cute little city less dependent on tourism than the mighty Apple and that our reliance on property taxes helped us weather the pandemic. But, really, Timesfolks might want to look at the mayor's Flickr feed (from which the photo comes) if they think she is just leading the quiet life at home.
