Governor Asks Cabinet and Senior Administrators to Reapply

From the Governor’s Daily Update under “Ready to Finsh the Work We Started”:

In an effort to maintain a top-notch Administration during his second term, Governor Patrick last week asked his Cabinet secretaries and senior Administration officials to reapply for their positions.  The Governor understands the demands these jobs can have on family life and wants to ensure that each member of his Administration is fully committed to the work that lies ahead. Over the past few weeks, the Governor has shared his vision for the second term and emphasized that the next four years will be about finishing the work he and Lieutenant Governor Murray have started – creating jobs, closing the achievement gap and making health care as affordable as it is accessible. “I have a lot of confidence in this team,” said Governor Patrick. “I acknowledge these are demanding jobs, and our agenda is ambitious. So I think it’s only fair and natural to ask everyone to think about their commitment and for me to think about mine.”
