Thomas Menino, Boston’s longest-serving mayor, dies at 71: spokesman

BOSTON (Reuters) – Thomas Menino, the longest-serving mayor in Boston history who led the city after the 2013 marathon bombing, died on Thursday at age 71 from cancer, his family said in a statement.

Menino, a Democrat, ran New England’s largest city for two decades before he stepped down in early 2014 at the end of his fifth term, saying he could no longer keep up the intense schedule.
