House Minority Leader’s Statement on Resignation of Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) issued the following statement today in response to the resignation of Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray:

“On a personal level, I wish Lieutenant Governor Murray the best in his new endeavors at the helm of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.

However, on a political level, Lieutenant Governor Murray departs the public sector with a number of unanswered questions regarding his involvement in numerous scandals. His direct connection to improper hiring practices and midnight car rides leave far more questions upon his departure than answers.

In the coming weeks and months, I look forward to seeing if pro-business Murray still endorses the $2 billion tax hike pushed by loyal Lieutenant Governor Murray. Demanding more money from businesses and taxpayers looks a lot different from the outside than it does when you are in the comfortable confines of the Executive Office.”
