Re: New mayor in Boston
I wouldn't put Menino on the same level as Bloomberg as far as influence goes, but certainly he was a well-liked mayor, and I know that many were sorry to see him go. Moreover, there wasn't a ton of excitement about the new prospects. I believe both races, in NYC and Boston, were underwhelming -- but it's hard to fill the spot of a Bloomberg, or a 20-year mayor like Menino.

New mayor in Boston
It seems that more cities than NYC are getting a changing of an old beloved guard. I'm not sure Menino was as popular as Mayor Bloomberg was in NYC, but he was certainly entrenched. Change can be difficult; we'll see how it ripples through Boston as well as NYC.
