Deval Patrick infamously gave as his reason for hiring James Aloisi the fact that Aloisi “knew where the bodies were buried”, on the Big Dig. Well today Deval just buried Jim Aloisi. Boston.com is reporting that Aloisi is “stepping down”.
The governor’s transportation secretary, James A. Aloisi Jr., is leaving his job, after less than one year in his position, according to a state official.
Aloisi, whose many public feuds with public officials included a high-profile fight to oust the director of the MBTA, drew controversy from the start for his role in the Big Dig. He served as a former general counsel to the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and a private lawyer working on the project.
This is about six months too late.
