Mayor Thomas Menino
Years in office: 7
City's Web site: www.cityofboston.com
2000 technology expenditures: $500,000 on Internet-related expenses.

On Web benefits: The Internet has been a good way for the administration
to get useful information to people, such as "Where's the closest park?
Where is the closest police station in case of an emergency? Where do I
sign my child up for kindergarten? I'm going to buy a home; what is the
assessed value of that home in Boston that I'm going to buy?"
