Grossman Statement on Menino’s Decision Not to Seek Reelection

Treasurer Steven Grossman issued the following statement in response to Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s decision not to run for a sixth term in office:

“Tom Menino said yes for 20 years to economic inclusion, immigrant entrepreneurship, social and economic justice for all, common-sense solutions, the goals of the LGBT community, and racial and gender diversity in government and in our civic institutions. He said no to those who would divide us and keep us from achieving our highest aspirations. We will miss his leadership at City Hall and look forward to his and Angela's vigorous community involvement in the years ahead.”
