This is no time for Patrick to pour money into an office upgrade

I almost choked when I read “Patrick to give office a $9 million upgrade” (Metro, Nov. 9). In the face of the economy and the number of people who genuinely need food, jobs, and a place to live, Governor Patrick decides to remodel an office he’ll soon leave. That is an incredible waste of our money.

There are a lot of us who think this is not at all necessary at this time. I sure wish the citizens of Massachusetts had a vote in this.
