Boston Globe Gets it Right: Calls out Aloisi

Today’s Boston Globe’s editorial about Transportation Secretary Jim Aloisi couldn’t have been any more accurate. While he spent months working on settling the score with a political enemy, public transportation users were looking for real leadership from the Patrick Administration. Governor Patrick and his sidekick Aloisi let the people of Massachusetts down when they let Dan Grabauskas go from the MBTA, in more ways than one. Not only did they lose a great public employee, but they weren’t all that honest about the reasoning for him being ousted. We called for the resignation of Jim Aloisi last week but that has gone largely ignored by the Patrick Administration. Apparently, Governor Patrick doesn’t feel like having the most qualified and competent people serving in important roles is a priority.
