Fun photos of Boston’s Mayor Thomas M. Menino, over the years.

As Mayor Thomas M. Menino is set to officially announce that he won’t seek a 6th term as mayor, I’m reminded of the many times I have photographed him as a staffer at the Boston Herald. Included is THIS, a **MUST-SEE** video as Mayor Menino responds to a Daily Beast report that states Boston is a pretty drunken city. He was always very accommodating to news photographers on deadline, etc, and usually very fun-spirited. In the 2000’s, Mayor Menino grew smart regarding any props, i.e signs, or pictures with animals or clowns at the circus. He would rarely be seen with any of those things at photo ops, because he knew how they would be “played” in the paper the next day. But I managed to grab a few “lighter” moments. Best of luck to Boston’s favorite buddy, Mayor Tom.
