BOSTON (AP) — Boston Mayor Martin Walsh will deliver his first "State of the City" address later this month.

The former state representative and labor union leader is expected to discuss his plan to create a "thriving, healthy and innovative" Boston. The annual speech will take place on Jan. 13 at Symphony Hall. Doors open 6 p.m.

Walsh, a Democrat from Dorchester, took office in January 2014. He succeeded Thomas Menino, the city's longest serving mayor, who opted not to seek re-election in 2013 and died in October at the age of 71 after battling cancer.
