Kudos to WCVB-TV

Kudos to WCVB’s Team 5 and its investigation into the proliferation of all those “quasi” state agencies, many of which are growing fat in Quasi-Land where neither “quite-public” nor “quite-private” adds up to “not-quite-accountable.”

As we continue to pan for gold, the House Republicans will be taking a closer look into this vein. Is this spending warranted? Or are too many tax-payers dollars being siphoned off to support bloated salaries and suspect missions?

Massachusetts Housing Partnership is rather typical. Out of 47 employees, 12 are being paid more than $100,000 per year, and Executive Director Clark Ziegler gets $203,475!
