Boston Mayor Marty Walsh kicked off the first-ever "Ask the Mayor" hour on Boston Public Radio with Jim and Margery. Emails, calls and tweets were put to the new Mayor, who declared at the outset he'd been in office a mere 26 days. Walsh will appear once a month on Boston Public Radio to address questions from listeners.
