Mayor Menino gives his annual address to the Boston business community

This morning, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino gave his annual address to the Boston business community at the Greater Boston Chamber's Government Affairs Forum. The event drew a crowd of more than 500 people at the Westin Copley Place Boston. In his address, the Mayor called for a renewed focus on education and voiced his support of Boston Public Schools Superintendent Carol Johnson's plan to close 9 school buildings and merge 8 schools into 4. He says that this plan will help reduce the 5,600 empty seats that currently exist in the Boston school district and cost taxpayers over $20 million each year. Mayor Menino said that tackling education reform now will secure the future of Boston's economic vitality.
