Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Boston City Hall PlazaPaul Pereira
Are you envious of
the mayor of City Hall -- either of them?Menino 's got a hard job. I'm not jealous of him. He's done
it for so long, I bet he's pretty good at it, whether people want to believe he
is or not. As for the Foursquare mayor [of City Hall], it's hard to be jealous
of someone you don't know.
Isn't it time we said
"the hell with it" and crowned Menino king?He already is, isn't he?
No, like, with a
crown and a robe and stuff.No. With a king in place, you can't get rid of him unless
you rebel. We don't need bloodshed and riots.
What do you think of
bricks?These look old. They need cleaning, I think. There used to
be a lot of seagulls here. I don't know if they've been chased away, or maybe they
sense the elephant in the Big Apple Circus tent. I heard an elephant the other
Was it a gentle
elephant, or a furious elephant?It wasn't a loud, ‘I'm scared' noise. More like, ‘Leave me
alone or shoot me with some water.' It was a very chill elephant.
