Jones: Treasurer Cahill has a lot of explaining to do

BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement calling on Treasurer Tim Cahill to explain his hiring practices.

In a time where private companies are laying off workers and cutting operating budgets, Treasurer Tim Cahill appears to be padding the state payrolls with family, friends and contributors.

The decision to hire family members is further proof that his judgment skills are lacking. Treasurer Cahill needs to explain his hiring practices as I believe the general public deserves to know what standards candidates must meet when applying for a position in agencies and authorities that are under his control.
