Murray aide testifies she guided people to Probation jobs

An aide to state Senate president Therese Murray told a federal jury Monday that she routinely directed politically connected job candidates to openings in state government, including in the Probation Department and the state trial court system, saying it was her job responsibility.

Francine Gannon, Murray’s constituent services director, agreed that she helped the son of an influential Brockton family obtain a job in the Probation Department, but said she also helped the father of Murray’s chief of staff get a job as a courtroom security officer.
