Gov. Patrick Says Cooperation Aided Bombing Recovery
BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Deval Patrick says the “power of working together” is what helped Boston get through and recover from a terror attack at last year’s Boston Marathon.
Patrick made his remarks Monday to about 200 municipal leaders, emergency responders and others gathered at Boston University for a symposium on leading cities through crisis.
Patrick praised doctors, nurses, marathon volunteers, bystanders, law enforcement and business leaders for cooperating in the immediate aftermath and during the last year.
Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told the crowd that he and Patrick began working on creating the One Fund to help victims within hours of the attack.
Twin bombs placed near the finish line of last year’s April 15 marathon killed three people and injured more than 260.?
