The Research Bureau is saddened by the passing of Mayor Tom Menino today. We worked with him closely for 30 years as a partner on major issues that will have a long-term impact on Boston. He was a strong fiscal steward of the City and his leadership established the foundation for Boston’s continued success. The video above provides a moving tribute to Tom Menino as Mayor.
