The Herald reports that Jeff Conley of the independent Financial Commission is retiring in July.
This is a sad day, he is the most important independent voice in City Government and he "knows where the bodies are buried" so to speak. It is insane that a city of 18,000 city workers only has 2 people overseeing the finances independently. If I am elected I will expand this commission. Thank you to Jeff for your hard work over the years. He is very friendly, feel free to give him a call and he will tell you all about how poorly managed the City of Boston is, and how we have way too many employees on the payroll.
