YOUR TURN: Who Will Run Against or After Menino?

If Boston Mayor Thomas Menino were to choose not to run next year - who would run? Who would you like to see run for mayor?

It's gotten to the point that individuals wanting to be Boston mayor openly admit they are waiting for Thomas Menino to step aside.

The Boston Herald did a roundup of the usual suspects expected to make a run at being Boston's next mayor.

Included in the Herald's list are: Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley, City Councilors John Connolly, Ayanna Pressley, Felix Arroyo, Tito Jackson and Mike Ross. Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral, as well as state Representatives Linda Dorcena Forry and Marty Walsh were also tabbed as possible candidates.

Several of the usual suspects have said they'd like to run for mayor if Menino stepped aside, but not if he's still in office. Just ask Maura Hennigan and Michael Flaherty about what it's like to run against one of the strongest mayoral incumbents in American history...

Anyone else you'd like to see run for Boston mayor? Leave your comments and possible candidates in the comments section below.

To me it's obvious that Menino will run again unless his various health issues worsen to the point where he isn't able to perform the job at the level to which he is accustomed.

I think Menino will continue to run well past 2112 - yeah, you read that right. I think he'll put his head in a floating glass on top of a robot body like Mr. Burns did in the future on "The Simpsons."

Noone who wants to stay on BCC will run (if smart) Tom is popular because he does move Boston forward. After? Rob Consalvo has my vote for Mayor!He has always moved Boston fwd w/o seeking limelight for it
