BOSTON (AP) — Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has been released from the hospital after prostate surgery and says he is “raring to go.”

The 70-year-old Menino says in a video that he is holding meetings, and he thanks people for their cards, phone calls and well-wishes.

He was released from Brigham and Women’s Hospital on Thursday. He is recuperating at an easily accessible city-owned mansion instead of his more distant home.

Menino has been mayor since 1993 and has announced he will not seek re-election. He has been beset by health issues recently, including a bone fracture and a serious respiratory infection.

He most recently had surgery for an enlarged prostate. His doctor says the surgery is not unusual and does not indicate a more serious condition.
