BOSTON — Mayor Marty Walsh will play a starring role at next week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, according to a report from Politico.
Walsh will be a featured speaker when the convention kicks off on Monday. A source familiar with the convention’s schedule told Politico that Walsh’s Monday time slot will be a “pretty good” one.
The other big name from Massachusetts slated to speak on opening night is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who over the last several months has played the role of social media attack dog against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Walsh has maintained a firm position of support in presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s corner.
