BOSTON — Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is marking the final 100 days of his administration by launching NextBoston, a blog intended to smooth the transition for his successor and the city.
Menino says in a video posted on the blog that went live Saturday that his team is working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible:
He says his goal is to ensure the city doesn’t miss a step as his 20-year term at City Hall ends on Jan. 6.
Aides say the blog is a departure from the practice of outgoing administrations giving their successors a bound book listing departments and their functions.
The Menino administration plans to present the transition information in a way that is engaging, straightforward and, at times, humorous and fun.
Menino promises his successor that “We will always have your back.”
