"Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, officially now the pick to lead the Labor Department in President elect Biden's Cabinet. Mayor today in Delaware, taking part in Mr Biden's press conference, saying he's looking forward to it. We are facing hard times. Nobody's tougher than the American worker. And now Now we have the opportunity to put power back in the hands of working people all across this country. And that is a good thing for our economy in for our country, and what the mayor heading to Washington shaping up to be a pretty interesting political year in the hub. There's already a preliminary election in Boston that is set for September. We've got a final election in November and WBC's Mike Macklin reports there's a push now to help the city avoid a special mayoral election on top of it. If Marty Walsh resigns his mayor to become U. S secretary of Labor before March 5th. The Boston City Charter requires the city toe hold a special election to choose Boston's next mayor. 2021 is already an election year with a preliminary runoff vote in September and the final election in November. So City Council Ricardo Royal has filed a home rule petition to save Boston from having to hold what he calls are redundant, Special election. Arroyo says a special election would be an unnecessary financial burden on the city that would also present a public health threat in the midst of a pandemic. Better, he says To that City Council President Kim JD serve out the balance of Mayor Walsh's term once she's appointed as Boston's acting mayor in the coming days. Mike Macklin, WBZ Boston's his radio 6 37 and less than two weeks president elected by them will be sworn into office. But President Trump says he won't be there. It hasn't happened since 18 69 when Andrew Johnson, who was sympathetic to the South, refused to attend the inauguration of the former Union Army leader Ulysses S. Grant. Now, Donald Trump says he'll similarly skip Joe Biden's inauguration. The announcement on Twitter comes despite Mr Trump, saying in a video last night that now is a moment for reconciliation. Today he tweets. The people who voted for him are patriots who will quote not be disrespected or treated unfairly. And that a CBS is Stephen Portnoy 6 37 Before we check business in New Hampshire Police in Manchester looking for a mother tonight, was accused of hiring a Rideshare service to get her toddler to day care on supervised. Police say they're also worried about Stephanie got Jews. Other child an infant.

Couldn't answer questions. Ah, warrant now out for God whose arrest on child endangerment charges. 6 38 time for business as promised. Here's Andro Day following yesterday's rally to new all time highs. Wall Street struggled most of today but ultimately ended higher for new records. Dow Rose 57. NASDAQ jumped. 134 has to be up 21 as well Straight reacted to an unexpected drop in U. S job creation in December. Down 140,000 instead of up 50,000 is forecast. U. S payrolls declined 9.37 million for all of last year. The market also weighed in on prospects for a new pandemic financial aid measure amid the president elect's pushed for trillions in aid. Also signs that not all congressional Democrats needed to pass a clean bill are at least as yet on board and you rode a Bloomberg business on WBZ Boston's news radio 6 39 Some calls this week for a lawmaker from West Virginia to resign will tell you why it's 6 45 at home at work, or if it's one of the same.

"Chris? Sit tight. We're gonna come back to you in just a moment. Let's get the world The national news for that. Over to Denise Pellegrini. Hey, Denise. Hey, Caroline Timo. President elect Jill Biden has picked Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is his labor Secretary. Walsh is the first union member to be a labor secretary in decades or would be if he's confirmed. Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo is president. Elects Pick for Commerce Joe Biden, calling the mob that besieged the capital yesterday that you've been talking about domestic terrorists, and that's a sentiment that D. C. Mayor Marion Bowser is echoing She calls for an investigation. What happened yesterday is what he wanted to happen and we must not underestimate the damage he did to our nation and our democracy over the next two weeks. So that's Mariel Bowser's commentary on President Trump there. Meantime, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has resigned. Former acting Chief of staff Mick Mulvaney resigning from his latest position, and we had a chance to ask Mulvaney earlier here on Bloomberg Radio, whether the president is fit for office. My guess is and it's an educated guess. Over the course of the last six or eight weeks, he surrounded himself with folks like Peter Navarro and Lin Wood and City Powell and Rudy Giuliani. And when he says, Let's Do X instead of saying Whoa, Mr President. That's not the best idea that saying all this press that's the best idea I've ever heard. In fact, let's do two X. Let's do three acts. Let's go. Let's do this. When President surrounds himself with people that give bad advice. He's going to make bad decisions, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are looking at those decisions, and they're calling on vice president Pence to use the 25th amendment to remove President Trump Senator Lindsey Graham says President Trump's actions were the problem, but he's stopping short of calling for Trump's.

"To get ready. Demonstrations began today were thousands attended a rally with signs saying things like Stop the seal the steel as they refused to accept Joe Biden's victory. CBS News reporter Julia Book Khanna was there. A lot of the speeches have been intertwined with religious mills. There's been a lot of Christian beliefs that have been intertwined into a lot of the rhetoric. At one moment, there was even a brief pause from the back to back speeches so that the crowd could join in singing Amazing Grace. Both of the past. Pro Trump demonstrations ended in violence with D C police reporting stabbings and multiple arrests, video shooting brawls and banners being burnt on DC streets. Lawmakers on Beacon Hill racing to the finish line of this legislative session. The curtain falls at midnight. There's a lot left to be completed jobs in transportation bills among those in limbo in the waning hours. Economic development bills include small business AIDS, sports betting and housing production initiatives. The governor this week said the transportation bill includes outlays needed in order to attract federal reimbursements, policing reform, climate change healthcare and the overdue fiscal 2021 budget were completed ahead of the sessions and and a new legislative class will be sworn in on Wednesday. Today. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announcing the city is extending covert restrictions for at least three more weeks. And that means businesses like Jim's movie theaters, museums, much more will remain closed. I wanna be clear this is not about targeting.

The . city now has an average positive test rate above six percent according to the city's latest analysis of neighborhood testing data I wanted to ask you. . So we've been hearing public health officials for awhile anticipate some kind of surge in the fall and I wondered are the numbers that we're actually seeing now in line with what you expected for this time of year in whatever modeling or planning might have done or or are these surges the surge bigger than you thought we'd be in right now how are you looking it and thinking about it? ? I don't think categorizes as a surge yet it's definitely increased <hes>. . We're seeing numbers every every week. . Now <hes> the new numbers as of today from yesterday, , and over the weekend <hes> two, , hundred and seventy three new cases which a lot <hes> probably the highest of seeing one day. . Actually might be two days in number by the seeing or in hundred something range of the day. . Now, , for the last couple of days <hes>, , that's the highest we've seen since <hes> around June <hes>. . So certainly <hes> you know I probably already is making residents are safe and how big The experts have said that we would see a potentially an uptick in the month of October November and December <hes>, , and they also has mentioned that it isn't coming upon all of us that we could actually <hes> keep those numbers down by wearing masks and making sure that we do everything we can social distancing avoiding black gatherings <hes> I'm also encouraging people to things tonight today to get tested I think it's really important having accurate number of tests you're in the city of Boston. . So we get an accurate account with the number really right now six point two percent. . In the second piece is down suggesting the people to get your flu shot. .

Fourth Congressional District candidate Becky Grossman wanted a 10 Day extension for counting them the state's top elections. Official secretary of the Commonwealth's Bill Galvin is pretty pleased with the decision. I think the most important message voters need to hear is the Supreme Judicial Court has now reaffirmed that the deadline for male invalids to be returned is Tuesday, September 1st election day so that in order to be counted, the ballot has to be received not just mail but received by local clerks. On or before Election Day. The justices say the existing September 1st deadline a Tuesday is constitutional, does not interfere with the right to vote in the primary and provides multiple voting options as well.
