Mayor Thomas M. Menino is expected to announce tomorrow that he will not run for re-election passing up on the possibility of a historic sixth term amid ongoing health woes sources tell the Herald.
Already the citys longest-serving mayor, Menino is expected to make the announcement at a press conference tomorrow afternoon.
Menino, 70, was hospitalized for two months last fall with a variety of aliments, including a blood clot, a spinal fracture, and diabetes.
Speculation has swirled since then about whether the mayor would run. So far, only City Councilor John Connolly has announced for the race.
Meninos news is expected to start a major scrum as politicians long in the wings jockey for an empty seat.
How will the city manage?
It’s a big misunderstanding. The mayor said “I enjoy spring weather and I look forward to opening day at Fenway Park this year.” but someone thought he said “I won’t run for re-election”. This sort of thing happens all the time to the poor guy. [/jk]
Thank Goodness! Whuddanidiot!
Another lib retires on easy street while cops are getting axed.
And yes...not that it would surprise you...he's a Rat.
“just when did his ancestors learn to walk upright?”
Must have been a decade or two prior to the people who elected him 5 times!!
It’s been almost 90 years since Boston had a Republican Mayor.
...only to be replaced by another leftist Democrat. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Conservatism, still, has the need to “break through the political barrier” which prevents conservatism from gaining any serious, long-term political ground, throughout all worldwide cities.
Meninoese will become a dead language.
The scumbag idiot socialist Mayor is ‘dead’.
Long live the scumbag idiot socialist Mayor.
