An invigorated Menino back at City Hall

A remarkably stronger Mayor Thomas M. Menino held court Thursday in his office at City Hall, speaking with new vigor about his plans for Boston, reflecting on his eight-week hospitalization, and suggesting that he may indeed seek a sixth term this fall.

“I still have the energy,” Menino told a half-dozen reporters as he avoided directly answering a question about whether he will run for reelection. “If I believe I can make a difference and move the city forward, that’s my future. If I believe I’m going to just sit here and get the glories of the last 19 years, that’s not Tom Menino. I have a lot more things to do. I have a lot more things I want to accomplish in this city.”
