House Minority Leader’s Statement on Ongoing Investigation into Probation Department Hiring Scandal

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) issued the following statement today in response to the ongoing investigation by the United States Attorney’s office into the hiring practices of the Probation Department:

"I hope that the US Attorney's office can and will bring this investigation to a speedy conclusion, and that those who have violated the public trust will face the consequences associated with those violations.

Because of these allegations, dark clouds continue to swirl around the State House. While we await resolution on this matter, one thing remains clear: this is a byproduct of one-party government."
