Mayor Tom Menino addresses Chamber in first public appearance since re-election.

Mayor Thomas M. Menino, the longest serving Mayor in Boston's illustrious history, addressed the Greater Boston Chamber this morning in his first major public appearance since his re-election and subsequent knee injury.

Menino spoke to nearly 500 Boston business leaders, promising a new era in city government and a bold vision for Boston's future.  The Mayor was joined on stage by three of his key cabinet members: Superintendent of Schools Carol Johnson, BRA Director John Palmieri, and budget chief Lisa Signori, each of whom called for action on the legislative front. 

Mayor Menino also announced the appointment of his new chief of staff, Mitchell Weiss, who currently serves as executive director of the Tobin Project
