Boston Mayer Walsh showed his great endorsement during Hillary Clinton’s rally at Faneuil Hall Sunday afternoon as Clinton introduced her infrastructure plan focusing on jobs creation and economy.

Walsh cheered up the audience before turning the stage over to Clinton. “Get your sledge hammers ready, because we’ve got a glass ceiling to demolish!” he said.

Clinton devoted large amount of her speech to her infrastructure plan in which she intended to invest $250 billion into the nation’s infrastructure such as the electric grid, to airports, roads, bridges, and railways.

The plan, according to Clinton, is a five-year, $275 billion plan to invest in infrastructure, create good-paying jobs and build the future America deserves. And that would be on top of what the Congress should finally get around to authorizing.

In addition to the plan itself, Clinton also planned to include creating a new national infrastructure bank to support up to “$250 billion in additional investment for projects of regional and national importance, and leverage money from states, cities and the private sector.”

She also mentioned about the snowstorms that affected Boston’s MBTA system to emphasize the importance public transit meant to the city and its people.

“Investing infrastructure makes our economy more productive and competitive,” Clinton said. “To build a strong economy for our future, we must start by building strong infrastructure today.”

Clinton also said that manufacturing was coming back as the government had created 68 straight months of job growth, with more than 13 million new jobs. And she was hoping to bring more to the nation’s economy.

According to Clinton, the campaign for her infrastructure investing named “Hard Hats for Hillary” aimed to mobilize union workers and would create more jobs for the middle class with good payment.

“I’m going to do everything I can so that in the 21st century, careers in the building trades are that ladder into the middle-class life that everybody working hard deserves,” she said. “And I’m also going to make sure that the federal government is a good partner for cities like Boston and mayors like Marty.”

As for the issues that concerned American families, Clinton said that she would pledge to raise incomes and help students to get affordable education.

She also mentioned that it’s unacceptable that 35 percent of schools in the U.S. don’t have fiber optic connections and she planned for all American households to have access to high-speed internet by 2020.

The Faneuil was packed with nearly a thousand supporters and about 200 were standing outside in the coldness cheering and holding up the signs said “Hard Hats for Hillary.”

“I really liked everything she said especially her plans to deal with the economy,” said Elizabeth Wilson, 47, from Cambridge. “I am very confident that she will be a great leader of our country.”
