House Republican Leadership Renews Call for Secretary Bigby to Resign
“After reading the revelations in today’s Boston Herald, it is clear that Secretary Bigby does not possess the ability, nor inspire the confidence of the public, necessary to lead the Executive Office of Health and Human Services going forward. As a result, we are renewing our call for Governor Patrick to ask for Dr. JudyAnn Bigby’s resignation, immediately.
The fact that it took Secretary Bigby seven months to launch a full review investigation is both reckless and irresponsible. Poor management has allowed these problems to escalate, and it will take a strong and effective manager to solve them. While we recognize that Dr. Bigby holds a deep knowledge in the health care field, her delayed response time demonstrates a lack of management skills required for this daunting task.
The Patrick Administration has made it clear over the past couple of weeks that they are capable, albeit reluctantly, to ask for the resignation of individuals within their administration that have breached the public’s trust. This situation is no different.”
