Tim Murray Leaves Lieutenant Governor's Office

Massachusetts Lt. Gov Timothy Murray

Tim Murray officially leaves office today after 6 ½ years as Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor

Murray had a large portfolio in the administration of Governor Deval Patrick.  He was an advocate for veterans’ services and preserving the state’s military bases. He also worked on issues involving homelessness and domestic violence.  Murray was the administration’s chief liaison with local government officials

Massachusetts will go without a lieutenant governor until a new one is elected in 2014 and takes office in January 2015.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
