EBT card abuse is rampant. The Probation Department is an ongoing joke. Tim Murray and the late night/early morning cover-up. Department of Employment Security mis-management. MBTA a wreck. Political appointees under investigation. So where is the governor? Out raising money for one of the most glorious presidential failures in American history? Don’t know.
Howie Carr had it right. If you get bagged for anything in this state just request you be treated like Uncle Omar.
Brockton has the usual plethora of six figure employees lead by the police and school department. What was of interest to the Enterprise was the significant differences in salary for virtually the same job in city hall versus the school department. Pays to be in education.
A blow out win for Steve McKinnon.
10% turnout in Middleboro for the election.
All the potential weaknesses of the Red Sox managed to surface in the first six games.

Marc Pacheco came before the BOS and I have to admit I did not watch the whole thing. I have a boredom threshold and Pacheco manages to hit it with great frequency. From the little I did watch he was not saying much - no great revelation - and seemed to be filling time with the love of his own voice.
How many folks went to the wrong precinct to vote? The new alignment was part of our census but most just toss that so you show up at the wrong place. I’ve been moved from two to six and now must engage in a nationwide search to discover who my rep is.
