Mayor Tom MeninoAs a visionary leader, as a gifted mentor, my friend Mayor Menino guided and nurtured us through two decades of our lives that have been witness to triumph and tragedy, opportunity and challenge. His contagious optimism and inspiring determination carved a path which strengthened and fostered our community of neighborhoods. He encouraged us all, whether in business, education or health care, to push the boundaries of innovation to solidify our city’s world-class status. He will be deeply missed by every person who ever called Boston home, and his courageous legacy will live in our hearts forever. Our thoughts and our prayers are with his wife Angela, his family and to everyone who knew Tom Menino as a friend.
