Menino’s grip on BRA may outlast his tenure

With little time left in office, naming two to agency’s board

With just months left in office, Mayor Thomas M. Menino is making key appointments to the Boston Redevelopment Authority board of directors that could allow him to influence major building projects long after he leaves City Hall.

Menino recently appointed Michael Monahan, head of a local electrical workers union, to a five-year term on the BRA board. The mayor has also said he will soon name a replacement for chairman Clarence “Jeep” Jones, who announced his retirement last week after 32 years as a board member.
