Mayor for Life

Overwhelmingly elected five times to the Boston City Council and then five times as Mayor, Tom Menino was the longest serving and most recognizable mayor in Boston's history. Bostonians, regardless of race, income, or profession, felt they had a friend in Tom Menino  - someone who "got" their issues and concerns. For neighborhood residents, he was the "urban mechanic"; for teachers and parents, the "Education Mayor." Environmentalists hailed him as the "Green Mayor." And many knew him simply as Tommy. He was accessible. He listened with his heart. And he responded.
