Boston City Councillor Michelle Wu was the top vote-getter in the Nov. 5 election, coasting to re-election and garnering some 7,500 votes more than Annissa Essaibi-George, who finished second in the at-large contest.
Wu, whose name has been floated as a possible challenger to Mayor Marty Walsh, topped the at-large ticket in most of the city’s 255 precincts — repeating a feat she accomplished in September’s preliminary election.
As you can see in the attached map, Wu — represented by the color blue — finished first in precincts across the city, from East Boston to Allston to Hyde Park.
Councillor Michael Flaherty, who finished third Tuesday and is represented below by orange, also followed a trend from the preliminary, topping the ticket in certain corners of the city, including South Boston and Charlestown.
Julia Mejia won the fourth at-large seat and gets the fourth check mark — at least for now. According to the unofficial results, she beat fellow first-time candidate Alejandra St. Guillen by just 10 votes, leading St. Guillen to call for a recount.
