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.
