Embattled head of unemployment bureau resigns

(Continued)

Patrick started 2013 by asking his Cabinet secretaries for commitments to stay on through 2014, or to depart so that he could bring new people in to finish his term with continuity at the top levels. Several top officials decided at that time to leave the administration, and four new secretaries were brought on board.

Asked on Friday if he expected more departures from his Cabinet in addition to Goldstein, Patrick said, “I hope not. I’m sorry she’s leaving.”
