Transportation Secretary Jeff Mullan dodged a budget and kept his job after bungling the public response to Big Dig light fixture fiasco earlier this year. While he promised to get better, Mullan’s tin ear certainly has improved.
The Globe reports Mullan gave raises to 17 senior managers in the months after the light fixture fell. And in a case of bad timing for him, the Globe reported on their Freedom of Information Act request the day after yet another MBTA/commuter rail fiasco left riders fuming and Brian McGrory in high dudgeon on Page One.
Sorta leave you wondering if there are better ways to be spending salary dollars – say perhaps on the secretary?
