By David Li,

Boston, October 8, 2013, — Boston Chinatown Residents Association (CRA) holds monthly meetings on first Wednesday of each month in Josiah Quincy Elementary School in Chinatown. Two final candidates for Boston Mayor: State Representative Marty Walsh and Boston City Councilor At-Large John Connolly appeared at the Oct. 2 meeting. About 100 Chinatown residents attended this meeting, and asked the candidates questions. Terry Yin, administrative director of CRA did Cantonese interpretation for the two candidates.

Please check out the two videos below for the speeches by Marty Walsh and John Connolly. After the speeches, Henry Yee, co-president of CRA and a tireless advocate for bilingual ballots, reported the voting results in Boston Chinatown for the September 24 primaries.
