Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has died following a battle with cancer. Menino left office earlier this year after announcing his retirement.

Menino visited New Bedford in 2012, and built a relationship with Mayor Jon Mitchell....

Mitchell joined Menino in an organization called "Mayors Against Illegal Guns," which the Mayor says brought awareness to the problems of illegan guns on the streets of America's cities.

At the invitation of Mayor Mitchell two years ago, Menino visited New Bedford and purchased two Joseph Abboud suits at The Bay off Elm Street, and toured the Downtown and the waterfront.
