Andover Newton joins Boston in mourning former Mayor Thomas Menino


Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino passed away Thursday, Oct. 30. He was the longest-serving mayor in Boston’s history.

Andover Newton Theological School President Martin B. Copenhaver issued the following statement:

“The Andover Newton community joins in mourning the death of former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. He was an extraordinary public servant who served as our home city mayor for two decades. Mayor Menino had a palpable sense of vocation in his role as mayor. He devoted his career to building bridges across racial, cultural and economic lines and cared deeply about those the powerful often forget. He always gave the impression that there was no job he would rather have—in large part because it afforded him the opportunity to serve the city he loved and all its residents. We will miss him.”
