Mayor Walsh doing a Reddit AMA tomorrow

Walsh Reddit

Tomorrow at 2:30 p.m., Boston Mayor Martin Walsh will join a prestigious list that includes President Barack Obama, Bill Murray, Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion if you were born after the year 1999), Woody Harrelson, and the great Scott Stapp.

Walsh will be doing a Reddit “Ask Me Anything,” an online question and answer forum on Reddit that allows anyone to ask, well, anything they want of the person on the other side of the AMA. 

Tomorrow’s AMA (you can find it here when it goes live) has the potential to be informative and entertaining as the format allows for questions that can be prodding and controversial as well as silly and often random.

One popular request that is asked during Reddit AMAs is to give proof that the person doing the forum is actually really who they say they are and not just a PR person or communication office employee. Most likely, Walsh will be asked to do the same.

Mayor Walsh will probably also face some of the standard questions that get asked of politicians and celebrities alike, including questions about the legalization of marijuana and other potentially controversial issues. I wouldn’t be surprised if Walsh is asked about gentrification in Boston, the future of the Innovation District/Seaport/Fort Point, and gun violence in the city.

Without a doubt, tomorrow’s Marty Walsh AMA will be interesting.
