Mass. governor announces big changes in cabinet
Gonzalez appeared with Patrick a week ago to announce that the state was revising downward its revenue projection after several months of lower-than-expected tax collections. The administration ordered $225 million in cuts in the executive branch and asked lawmakers to approve similar cuts in other areas of government.
At least four other cabinet secretaries agreed to stay on for the final two years of Patrick’s term, including Transportation Secretary Richard Davey and Richard Sullivan, secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
