He was a tough, unapologetic Bostonian that loved his city.
He guided Boston through two of the most dynamic decades in history. Helping it evolve with emerging technology and transforming the way Boston did business with its residents. All this while dealing with ever changing domestic security threats and the biggest economic shift since the great depression.
He was the Urban Mechanic….
For this – Mayor Menino will always have my respect.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
