‘The lieutenant governor will not see you now’

The article showing Timothy Murray’s departure (“Murray assumes top office briefly,” Metro, June 1) was accompanied by a photo of a relatively large staff clapping. The lieutenant governor will not be replaced. Governor Patrick’s spokeswoman said, “His staff can stay on as long as they would like to be here.”

This does a disservice to the taxpayers. What justification is there for an essentially leaderless, nondefined governmental unit to continue a staff?


While no one wants unemployment, redeployment is a normal process in a business.
