WGBH joins the community in mourning the loss of former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino at 71. The first Italian American elected to the position, Menino was the city's longest-serving mayor, holding the office for an unprecedented five terms.
In the words of President Obama, “Bold, big-hearted, and Boston strong, Tom was the embodiment of the city he loved and led for more than two decades.”
