Statement from Secretary William Galvin on the passing of former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.
“As a resident of Boston, I join other Bostonians in mourning the passing of Tom Menino who led this city with dedication and affection for so long. From his time as councilor representing Hyde Park to his years as mayor, his concern for the well-being of all the city’s citizens was matched by a determination that government provide those citizens with services they require, whether great or humble.
Tom Menino’s years at City Hall stand as the best shining example of the contributions that arise from the district councilors, and make me proud to have had a role in the adoption of that system.
My sympathy and prayers go out to the Menino family at their time of loss.
