|Boston's suffering, very effective mayor cancels first
official visit to Haiti
|By Yves A. Isidor, wehaitians.com executive editor
Boston's longest serving, very effective mayor, Thomas M. Menino,
as evidenced by his many achievements, from the construction of new libraries to
new schools to revitalization of neighborhoods, late last
week canceled his next month first official visit to Haiti.
This decision not to visit the Caribbean quasi-island nation,
16 long years after he first entered City Hall as the head of government, though
prior to so for many years he was a member of the Boston's City Council, came
weeks after the proven mayor, who neither as a private citizen never visited
the small corner of the Caribbean, injured his knee on Nov. 8, in the early
evening, when he was carrying a bag of food up the stairs at his son's
residence, just a few hours after a day of leisure in which he had permitted
himself to attend a Catholic church service and subsequently being a fan at a
Patriots game. .
Mr. Menino, 66, who is still recovering at home has not
indicated if it is still his intention to visit Haiti after his quality of
health changes, in the positive terms - that is he fully recovers.
