NEW: Top Officials To Quit Gov Patrick’s Administration

Thursday, December 13, 2012

 

Several top officials in Governor Deval Patrick's cabinet plan to part ways with the administration even as it faces a number of challenges and scandals, according to reports.

JudyAnn Bigby, the secretary of Health and Human Services who has been criticized in connection with the state drug lab scandal, will be replaced by John Polanowicz, who currently serves as president of St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton. Jay Gonzalez, the secretary of Administration and Finance, will be replaced by Health Insurance Connector Authority Executive Director Glen Shor.

Public Safety and Homeland Security Secretary Mary Beth Heffernan will be succeeded by Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral. The governor's Education Secretary Paul Reville is also reported to be resigning in the coming weeks.

Patrick recently lost Chief of Staff Mo Cowan, who will leave next month to be replaced by Brendan Ryan, the governor's current communications director.
