Victoria Reggie Kennedy Statement on the Passing of Mayor Thomas Menino

Victoria Reggie Kennedy, President of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute Board of Directors, released the following statement today on the passing of former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino:

“Tom Menino was an extraordinary leader and a wonderful friend. He and my husband Ted had a great relationship, built on mutual respect, trust and love of the City of Boston. And lucky for me, Tom and Angela and I shared that same warm friendship.

“Twenty-first century Boston blossomed under Mayor Tom Menino. He leaves a huge legacy of achievement. And his loss leaves a huge hole in our hearts. Angela, Susan, Tom Jr. and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.”
