Menino: ‘I Made A Mistake, I Apologize’ For ‘Blow Up Detroit’ Comment

Boston Mayor Tom Menino admitted Wednesday he used a poor choice of words to describe what he would do with the city of Detroit.


In March, Boston’s longest-serving mayor announced he would not seek re-election to a sixth term. After twenty years in office, and a series of recent health issues, Mayor Tom Menino decided to hand over the reins. Before the year was out, Boston Schools Superintendent Carol Johnson and Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis would also step down. When his term ends in January, Menino will take a job at Boston University.  Marty Walsh was elected the next Mayor of Boston.
