BOSTON (CBS) – Mayor Tom Menino now knows who will succeed him after 20 years in City Hall.
Menino met with Mayor-elect Marty Walsh in his office Wednesday, hours after Walsh defeated John Connolly in Tuesday’s election.
Menino shot down reports that there’s been a long rift between himself and Walsh.
“There’s people out there who want to have us fight with each other. They were trying to drag me into the campaign by saying certain things about me. I’ve kept my cool in the whole thing and I’ll continue to do that because this is about the city and Marty and I go back a lot of years,” the mayor told reporters.
