Thank You, Mayor Menino

October 30th, 2017

Eastie Library with Thank You signToday marks three years since the passing of our co-founder, Mayor Tom Menino. He believed in the power of mayors to improve lives and take bold steps toward protecting the environment. He believed in the importance of cities as welcoming places devoted to fairness, equity and justice. He believed in the power of youth to help shape the present and future. These values permeate so much of what we do.

Thank you, Mayor Menino.

“The 20 years I’ve been Mayor, I don’t think I did anything special. I did what you’re supposed to do – help people. Take positions on issues that you believe are right. Never sell your ideals for other people’s special interests. And I want to say, I’ve enjoyed every day of it.” – Thomas M. Menino, December 2013
