Remembering Mayor Thomas Menino

The Pardee Center staff is deeply saddened by the loss of Thomas Menino, former long-time Mayor of Boston and most recently co-director of BU’s Initiative on Cities. We had the good fortune to work with Mayor Menino and to experience first-hand his excitement for helping people, including BU students. We join the many others who will miss his wisdom, his wit, and his passion for people, and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family, friends, and colleagues.
