19 days to Nov. 5. State Rep. Marty Walsh and City Councillor At-Large John Connolly both appear in front of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce this morning at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

Connolly will be joined by campaign co-chair Val Hyman, a DJ, Greg Selkoe of Karmaloop, Darryl Settles of D’Ventures Limited, and Clayton Turnbull, president of Waldwin Group, among others.
