Boston has elected its first woman mayor. Michelle Wu, 36, will not only be the first woman to serve in the city's top office, but also the first person of color. She defeated fellow Democrat Annissa Essaibi George, 47, on Tuesday. 

"We are ready to meet this moment. We are ready to become a Boston for everyone. We're ready to be a Boston that doesn't push people out, but welcomes all who call our city home," Wu said during an election night speech to supporters.
