As you may know, Mayor Menino has decided not to seek re-election. He has served our city well for the last 20 years as our Mayor and deserves our gratitude. His announcement has prompted a conversation about the future of our city and how we can ensure that Boston continues to move forward.
Over the past few days, I have received numerous phone calls, e-mails, and texts asking me if I will consider putting forth my candidacy. The answer is yes, I am seriously considering running for Mayor of Boston.
The pundits say that we need to raise $1 million to win. People may disagree with that estimate, but there is no doubt that a winning, grassroots mayoral campaign will require significant financial resources and a strong volunteer effort.
Time and time again, I have been able to count on you and I need your support now more than ever. Please make a donation today. Every donation, regardless of the amount, is critical. Please be advised that the maximum personal contribution allowed is $500.

Your donation will make this campaign a reality.
