Menino Wants YOU to Improve Boston

As part of a contest called the Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayor’s Challenge, Mayor Menino is asking everyone to send their ideas on how to improve the city his way. The city with the winning idea, which “must address a social or economic problem or improve the city’s customer service, level of efficiency, or accountability to and engagement with the public,” will be awarded $5 million. “We are all urban mechanics. If you have an inventive idea that can make our city better, I want to hear it,” Menino said. Cue the collective thought: FASTER T SERVICE. [Boston Business Journal]
