Mayor Marty Walsh Plans for free Pre-K in City

Last night during the Mayor's press conference, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said he plans for the city include offering free pre-kindergarten citywide, creating good jobs in every neighborhood and investing in affordable housing.

He says he’ll file legislation this week to offer free pre-kindergarten to every 4-year-old for the first time, funded by tourism taxes. He says an upcoming 10-year school plan contains a $1 billion investment in school buildings. Walsh says these initiatives will ensure Boston “lifts everyone up as it rises.”

Walsh also announced that Boston will bring a new, cutting-edge traffic light technology to its busiest streets and library services will return to the Chinatown neighborhood. He hopes that over 3-years Boston will add an additional 60,000 jobs which will help to cut unemployment and increase the housing shortage by building 19,000 homes.
