Walsh started his career when he was 21 and worked for the Laborers Union Local 223. He was eventually named president of the union, a role he held until he was elected mayor. A long-time Democrat, Walsh’s first elected position was on the Massachusetts House of Representatives, where he represented Suffolk County’s 13th District.
In 2014, Walsh became 48th mayor of Boston, a position he held until his recent appointment to the Biden administration. In his mayoral acceptance speech, Walsh said, “I will go to City Hall as a leader, but also as a listener—a person who understands this city because I have lived it.” As mayor, Walsh saw his salary bumped up to $199,999 in 2018. It was the first increase in the mayor’s salary since 2006.
