For Immediate Release - March 28, 2013

Statement of Attorney General Martha Coakley on Mayor Thomas M. Menino

“Mayor Menino has led Boston’s resurgence and will leave a lasting legacy as one of the greatest mayors in the city’s rich history. For twenty years, Mayor Menino has been a champion for the people he has met in the neighborhoods every day – especially those who otherwise would have no voice. He has been a leading advocate for affordable housing, public education, LGBT rights and the fight against gun violence. I am privileged to call him a friend. I know he’s going to keep working hard for the people of Boston for the rest of his term and beyond, and he has earned some much deserved time with his family and grandchildren.”
